I am simply a fellow human being - a mom, a wife, a sister, a daughter, a friend - trying to make sense of what’s going on in the world and finding my ways to contribute to its healing. One of those ways is to create safe spaces where together we can explore both our gratitude and our pain and fears for our world. This is immensely powerful medicine which frees much needed emotional energy and sparks our creativity as we then explore solutions together - each of us tapping in to our own unique gifts, skills and experiences.
My entire life has been spent facilitating and teaching - as a speech-language pathologist, dog agility trainer, personal growth speaker and facilitator, laughter yoga leader, and a homeschooling mom. I have since applied all those skills to becoming a trained Work That Reconnects facilitator.
If you’re upset by the mess our world is in, both in terms of environmental and social justice, then consider attending a WTR event. I offer workshops ranging from 2-3 hours to multiple days in length, and can custom design them to fit your particular group’s goals, needs and desires.
Audiences I work with
So far, I haven't targeted any particular group because my community is so small that it makes more sense to target a variety of groups.
Experience facilitating other events & workshops
What year did you begin facilitating the Work That Reconnects?
I have facilitated three WTR workshops so far over the course of the 2017/18 WTR Facilitator Development Program. In addition, my entire life has been spent facilitating and teaching - as a speech-language pathologist, dog agility trainer, personal growth speaker and facilitator, laughter yoga leader, and a homeschooling mom. I incorporate the many skills and tools I've learned through those experiences into facilitating the WTR, and find them very complementary since my focus all along has been on experiential and participant-centered facilitation. I've also been studying anti-oppression work over the past couple years and include what I've learned there in my facilitation. I have knowledge and experience facilitating women's circles and bring that to my WTR facilitation.
I do not have any websites or marketing to share at this time because my main focus in the past few years has been on homeschooling my kids and on facilitating within my church and community, none of which has required a web presence. As my teenagers need me less and I have more time to focus on offering the WTR, I envision creating a web presence in the future.
