About Me: 

World Pulse embodies my deepest hope and fiercest dream that global transformation is not only possible but is manifesting and multiplying... as reflected in our community everyday. For 30 years I have been working with leaders in the private and public sector to awaken leadership potential: to be self aware, explore and reduce our biases, be empowered, connected, empathic, inclusive and vision driven. Many people have asked me over the years, "isn't it naive to think leaders can really live these ideals?" I believe more than ever from a pragmatic, grounded assessment that we will not survive as a species if we do not. In World Pulse, I found a home. To me, World Pulse provides the sanctuary and the living community to create this new story together...our stories humanize our complexity and paradoxes within, they show that in spite of tremendous barriers, breakthrough change is possible. They move us beyond "us and them" to find the dignity of our shared sufferings, outrage, silencing, marginalization and pain..to be the counterpoint, to stand up and say yes to what is inspired, just, courageous. Because of every women's story expressed here I feel stronger and more determined to be the counterpoint to despair or powerlessness. Whether I am working with an academic environment, or a business, a non profit or being part of the board at WP, the inspiration I carry gives me more courage to name what matters. In standing on this sacred ground, I am grateful and fiercely committed to expanding our reach, access and impact for the widest global embrace possible.

My son, Marthas Vineyard, peace building, addressing unconscious bias, loving innovation and social entrepreneurship, perennial wisdom practices
