I’ve had several past lives, working first in remedial education, fashion production, fundraising, and now organizational, service and business design... so what is the common thread?I provide a space where relationships can thrive in order to produce meaningful change.
Born to a Mormon Lawyer and a Dutch Scientist, I learned early on that life is full of beautiful contradictions. I approach these with the framework of Social & Cultural Analysis at NYU, double majoring in Metropolitan & Gender Studies, and minoring in French Language.
After enjoying several life chapters in New York City, Amsterdam and Paris, I am happy to call San Francisco my home. I brought together my love for organizational development and brand empowerment by crafting several articles on Designing Culture Bicoastally
and A Designer's Guide to Naming and Branding Conference Rooms
I currently work as a Senior Strategic Designer at a leading business and strategy design firm, communicating the business case for design to large corporate clients. In the evenings, I provide guidance as a Leadership Coach for Seth Godin's intensive altMBA program
. In recent months I have been working on facilitating interactive creativity workshops at large conferences, like my Ideation Crash Course
at Springboard Rise and Business Design Practice
with NYU Bay Area Alumni Group.By day, I am a strategist, culture developer and client ambassador. By night, a sketchnoter and acapella musician.Gallup StrengthsFinder
