Executive-level strategic guidance and in-depth technical assistance supporting governmental ministries, corporations and NGOs

I am passionate about working with community, government and business leaders to solve shared challenges that improve community well-being.  I have found that integrating environmental and social concerns in economic decision making results in increased profits, creates systemic stability, and reduces vulnerabilities.
