What I daydream about on runs.
The questions that make me light up.
Welcome to my online home. I am a creative non-profit and higher education leader who believes in the power of learning communities--whether in a classroom, a board room or on the concert stage.
I have held leadership positions at two major cultural institutions--New England Conservatory in Boston and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. At NEC, I founded the Entrepreneurial Musicianship Department, a strategic initiative focused on equipping young musicians with the leadership skills they need to be competitive in the 21st century. As Director of Strategic Planning Engagement with ASO, I facilitated a strategic planning process that brought together administrative staff, musicians and trustees to evolve and implement a new vision for the orchestra.
An alumna of the Harvard Graduate School of Education, I designed an individualized course of study focused on leadership and organizational development. This past summer, I participated in a one-month socio-economic and political research trip and two-month teaching fellowship in Southeast Asia, sponsored by the Asia Center for Leadership Initiatives.
