I believe good facilitation creates connection. I have experienced this in classrooms, small groups, dinner parties, and my own Campfire storytelling experience. I have been fortunate to cultivate these skills in my professional life. I have over 15 years of experience in community engagement, international and domestic social work, civic engagement, higher education, training, and facilitation. Currently, I support the integration of theory and practice for social work and public health students. Through these experiences I cultivated a love of engaging people in sharing their experiences and supporting individuals’ in community engagement. You might also find me marveling at fireflies, hosting a scotch club, blowing giant bubbles, using one of my many kitchen gadgets, exploring local restaurants, or piecing together a quilt.
