Writing & Communications Services, Principal
How can women help each other in business?
By being honest, having a sense of humor, sharing our stories, and recognizing our collective strengths when we team up. Women are the backbone of society, and we have so much to offer each other and our communities.
What are you passionate about?
Rivers and streams, mountains and oceans, deserts and seas. I love being an advocate for the world’s most spectacular resources, and exploring them first-hand on wild adventures, too.
How do you “live your values?”
By reminding myself (often!) to be who I am, love who I’m with, live in the moment. It’s hard work, living our values, but yields the biggest benefits in the end.
What can’t you stop talking about?
How I plan to, someday, set off into the sunset to sail around the world (again, but this time for longer).
What would be impossible for you to give up?
Dark chocolate. Sailboats. Travel. Whiskey. Books.
How do you want to be remembered?
As someone who wasn’t afraid to say yes.
What inspires you in your business?
Telling good stories, about people and businesses, places and problems. I love connecting the dots to create a picture for others to ponder.
Name a time that you felt you were incredibly brave?
How do you accomplish goals?
Lists, baby, lists. And some frequent visioning, which involves lots of markers and posterboards.
Knowing what you know now, what advice would you give the child version of yourself?
Laugh at yourself, love your foibles, go outside as much as you can.
