Aspiration CA Tech Fest in Richmond, California


I care about creating opportunities for productive peer sharing and collaboration, catalyzing emerging leaders and enabling connections to develop.

Facilitation History

From 2011-2016, I trained and delivered the Aspiration participatory facilitation methodology for the design and delivery of interactive, strategic convenings in 11 countries around the globe. I owe deep gratitude for my years employed by Aspiration and continue to serve as board member.  Read more about their participatory methodology and events.
