Thank you for taking time to visit my website.  


Known as The Courage Expert and innovator of StuckThinking™, I am the principal of a 21-year-old human potential consulting firm based in Denver, Colorado and a courage coach. With over twenty years of original research in integrating courage behaviors, courageous leadership, women’s courage and non-gender integral levels of courage consciousness, I focus on the traps and tricks of the human condition such as denial (and at appropriate times, I apply the Enneagram or Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®). I believe that integrating courage actions at work leads to a more naturally propelled and fulfilled employee, resulting in reduced attrition, accelerated synergistic production and improved bottom-line performance. The outcome for leadership development: there is a direct correlation between the organization’s success and courage quotient.

I have instructed on the Enneagram at the University of Denver and formerly for 18 years at the University of Denver five personal development classes for CPAs Continuing Professional Education (CPE) and currently CPE4u with Dr. Mark Vogel.
