About me


I am seeking and sharing insights on how people can come together, as equals, to work toward positive personal, professional, and social change. My current focus is on the influence of relationship-building programs on the resilience of women in agriculture (here's a preview of my Master's thesis). I have also studied the effect of learning circles on the ability of Cooperative Extension professionals to adopt a co-creative mindset (here's a journal article I co-authored on learning circles and co-creation). Adult education theory (here's a board game I created based on how I view adult education), collective action networks, social network analysis, community development, and individual, ecological, and community resilience are all important factors in my work.
