I have been informed by many teachers and sustained by family and friends. I am grateful for my career in the law, and I’m thankful for the opportunity to be a coach and consultant. For as long as I can remember, I have loved language. Over the years, poetry has awakened and nurtured me. Today, I often use poetry with my clients to wrestle with big questions and frequent challenges.

Poetry is a raid on the inarticulate. Poets capture our interest, speak to the essence of the matter and galvanize us to take action. That is true for me, as it is for my clients.
