If event planning is a genetic trait, I might have the DNA for it. Even as a child, I enjoyed planning and organizing. Each year, I cataloged my Christmas presents for easy reference when the adults asked what I'd received. I also threw an elaborate Halloween party that I started planning in August!
In adulthood, I've used every opportunity to plan events on my winding career path. As a woman in STEM and a university professor, I've organized numerous international workshops and department retreats. I've also done a lot of project management and program design. My time managing a professional degree program sparked an enthusiasm for designing exciting curriculums and finding inspiring instructors to deliver it. A great retreat works the same!

My many experiences provide a broad foundation for me to confidently create fun, transformational retreats for you! While I do work with clients, you may notice some retreats listed as "Signature Events". These are completely unique retreat experiences built from an educational topic that I want to share with others. "Signature Events" include such gems as The Self-Sufficient Woman and Animals & Art.
