About Me

My parents introduced me to canoeing at a young age, mostly on the Nantahala River in western North Carolina. Later, in the summers during college, I taught young adults to whitewater canoe, tandem style. We hauled boats all over the Southeast, learning how to read the water, maneuver through currents, and work together as teammates. These happy memories involve the same skills that inspire my practice—strategy, skill, and collaboration. Though not (always) as fun as paddling, processing challenges with my clients is a great joy. (And river metaphors are welcome!)
