ABOUT New Leaf

New Leaf was created to support leaders like you when something new needs to happen. It might be a new team outlook, a new partnership, strategy or development for the city.

In a time of unprecedented complexity, overwhelm, speed and uncertainty, people come to me to to make sense of their current reality and build a springboard for the future. I view your challenges with empathy and opportunity. I bring a brave heart, an open mind and unmatched skills for working with diverse groups of people to move through difficulty and uncertainty to clarity and success, to move from “what is” to “what is truly needed”.
