What I am Most Grateful For

Why The Photo of the Grand Canyon?

I was 40 years old...

If you wonder why my cover photo for the site is the Grand Canyon, there's a story there. 

In 2008, when I turned 40, I did an 8 day whitewater rafting trip and it was life affirming and life changing. Since that first trip, I have been to the Canyon 8 times and shared the experience with guests from all over the world and a variety of backgrounds. I found great joy in seeing them experience, with wonder and awe, the majesty of the Canyon. I've coached and witnessed people conquer fears and take chances. 

In the past 10 years, in my professional life, I have had many similar experiences watching individuals and organizations experience success and face challenges. Gratefully, I have been able to coach and collaborate with many of them to take those successes to the next level and face those challenges with tenacity.

My business is named Odonata Coaching and Consulting because this is the name of the order in entomology that dragonflies belong to. Dragonflies are creatures of significant transformation. That is what my work with individuals and organizations does - CREATE NEW POSSIBILITIES AND GREAT TRANSFORMATION.
