A Little Bit About Me...

My passion for travel, contemplative practice and writing began when I was a small child in Maine, gazing longingly at the ocean, and the imagined worlds beyond. So, I traveled internationally before going to Naropa University. Since then, over the last two decades, I have guided thousands of leaders as they navigate the creation of thriving cultures. Through my business, The Presence Point (pending B Corp certification) I work with organizations longing to empower their leaders from the inside-out. My passion is rooted in over twenty years of service, contemplative training and teaching in the Shambhala Buddhist community and stems from the conviction that when leaders are genuine, society can bloom. I am the founder of GENUINE, Inc, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that focuses on transforming society through community. I am a keynote speaker, podcaster, visionary and author and now live high on a hill in rural Vermont with my sweet husband and two small daughters.

Who am I?
