CULTURAL INITIATIVES CONSULTING
Helping people connect with their innate wisdom, aesthetic vision and foster a culture that appreciates and supports creativity has been the laser focus of my career for over 30 years.
I have worked with a multitude of clients, art and history museums, environmental organizations, art centers, non-profit organizations and hundreds of professional artists. Through deep listening, honoring diverse perspectives, and activating new and creative thinking I have developed and implemented a broad spectrum of art exhibitions, learning environments, collaborations, community-building initiatives and educational programs that have served as effective catalysts for dialogue and transformation.
Serving communities as an executive director, senior art museum education specialist, curator, and arts consultant, I have gained a wealth of experience as a leader, creative and strategic thinker, educator and visual artist, which I bring to both my arts consulting and coaching practice.
I hold a BFA, a MA degree in Arts Education with a focus in Audience Research and certification as a professional Co-Active Coach. In addition I have served as a speaker and panelist at national art and education conferences and on numerous state and local grant review panels. My 2 and 3-dimensional art works have been featured in national publications, private collections and exhibitions.
