our story

There is a big difference between achievement and fulfillment. As a once self-proclaimed hyper-achiever, I can tell you that this self-sabotaging belief no longer serves my authentic self. Instead, now I chase what brings me energy and creates fulfillment in my life offering deeper perspective and sense of purpose. The rewards are substantial and of no comparison. 

With over a dozen years of recognized strategy & transformation management consulting and certified coaching & leadership development experience, I serve individuals and organizations through my passion and focus in human & business transformation, executive leadership development, and change delivery excellence. I love connecting people to what brings them energy and grounds them to their purpose in this world - my definition of fulfillment & meaningful work.

With that, The Wander Project was born.

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride!
