The Full Story


The Garden Hill focus is on leaders and change–agents in all the Social Purpose spaces—nonprofits, grass roots movements, for profits with a social purpose component, education, government, wellness and healthcare.
I have worked with and studied such passion-driven Individuals for a long time.
What have I learned? Quite a lot, including:

  • Change-makers in social-, world- and community-serving settings often want to know themselves and understand others better; to have better relationships.

  • They want to optimize their lived experience.

  • They want to leverage efforts more easily

  • They desire to more deeply develop their empathy and emotional intelligence. Not just for their own growth, but they know that scores of studies and surveys of today's workforce indicate it is critical to the health of all our systems

Those growth-minded people are often the ones who can deliver the best results. Because they deeply care, they want to do well while being well.  

Do you identify as such? Reach out, and let's discover new wa
ys to leverage your expertise, resources and passions for the common good and for yours.

My work through Garden Hill Consulting has been a fulfilling journey. With a career grounded in financial systems, analysis, diagnosis, processes and planning, my initial offerings—in 2009— were primarily financial management services and operational planning for nonprofit organizations. As I completed my graduate degree, I expanded my work into Organization Structure Design, program evaluation, leadership development and Organizational Development. 

As my knowledge and expertise with the Enneagram has deepened, it is now the primary tool in my professional work. I now deliver all my consulting, mentoring and coaching through an Enneagram lens,
augmented by a variety of additional approaches. 


To create and expand the positive experience of work in nonprofit, service/care professions and  social-change spaces while increasing the Impact from the efforts. To support those on the front lines of leadership and social change so that they can Thrive and flourish in deeply meaningful and sustaining ways,
personally and professionally.
To build the Emotional Intelligence and raise Consciousness of change-makers so that Empathy is manifested in all corners.
