My work has evolved from a background in the social sector, business, university-community leadership and the performing arts. Concepts Consulting Group, Inc. has been my business since 2007, and everything I learned from my practiced excellence in a number of disciplines informs my enterprise today. That includes 7 years in the commercial insurance industry early on, many years dedication to achieving a doctorate in music and performance (DMA) while performing and teaching, and 10 years establishing a nationally recognized arts partnerships office at Arizona State University. I aspire to purposeful relationships that accomplish real work, work that benefits individuals, their organizations, and the communities of which they are a part. I work side by side with leaders and developing leaders, through facilitation and consultation, to empower communication, build teams around work, and create an environment for organizations and individuals to take action, with planning and assessment for sustainable results.
My abilities include focus on detail with an eye to the broader context and a talent for collaboration in diverse environments, through facilitation, strategic visioning, planning and development, training and experiential learning in interdisciplinary contexts, documentation, assessment, reporting, program and training design, and the arts for human development. My experience encompasses organizational development, coalitions, and communities of practice. Facilitation in various settings includes focus groups, residencies, retreats, workshops, arts for human development and conferences with a variety of collaborative processes that may include the arts.
