I am an award-winning educational leader advising national systems, individual schools, international projects, ed-tech start-ups and early career leaders. I specialize in visionary projects on the future of learning. Recent workshops have centered on the neuroscience of learning space both virtual and physical.

I currently lead one of the most progressive schools in the world of education, the International School of Helsinki. My work began there with facilitating a future-focused new Mission, Vision and Strategic Plan to identify the community’s values into action. It wasn’t the first time that I took the bull by the horns. Unlike many schools and organizations that bring in consultants for this work, I believe it is the Head of an organization who must lead this process to ensure deep understanding of what your community or clients need to stay relevant. Most leaders have little to no training in this type of work.
In fact, most leadership training misses many of the key skills to inspire and enact real change. It is a dance of steps of power and empowerment, guidance and autonomy, inspiration and creativity. I am excited to share with you my experience leading schools, chairing Boards, coaching executives, building teams, and creating leadership capacity of everyone that surrounds you in your life.
