I started my career majoring in environmental science and going to law school with the intention of becoming an environmental lawyer. While I have practiced to some degree in that field, my career has brought me across the world, including Mexico, Argentina, the Northern Mariana Islands, the Philippines, Hawaii, Arctic Alaska and Russia.
In 2018, I completed a Ph.D. at the University of Hawaii-Manoa how Alaska Native Villages are adapting to climate change and how laws and planning help or hinder. Much of my work now involves legal, planning, and logistical work with these communities on adaptation and other community challenges. The other substantial part of my work involves mediation, particularly for families with children.
I am passionate about helping people overcome whatever life issues they may be experiencing; I am a compassionate and caring sounding board for you; I’ll help you discover the underlying greatness you may have inside you; I’ll help show you how to embrace the shitty situations life may throw at you and how to come out the otherside with strength, courage, fortitude and a smile.
Working with People Partners (HR practitioners) as a Coach and Mentor, I partner to develop leadership and HR capability across all levels and disciplines, enabling practitioners to become a more strategic, trusted and credible partner in the business. Starting with the strengths of the individual and how they work in the context of the organisation, I act as a translator, connector and strategist to support growth and build up confidence as a practitioner.
Driven, enthusiastic, well versed and capable of interpreting convoluted concepts/ terminologies into easy to digest and understand terms.
I love what I do and I would like to bring the best out of you!
