I have always had a knack for and love of thinking creatively about space. Combining that skill with a deep passion for empowering people to have lives that are rich with meaning and joy has proved a powerful recipe for helping people with their homes. Understanding that attending to one’s surroundings is a highly effective tool I love guiding people through that process and am known for working responsively with kindness and respect.

My work has evolved over 25 years of experience with individuals, groups and organizations as a counselor, program director, activist, board president, volunteer coordinator, workshop facilitator and more. My formal education includes a BA in Social Thought and Political Economy from University of Massachusetts, an MSW from Hunter College and a semester of study and work in Central America. My informal education has been vast and varied with countless teachers and mentors of all ages and backgrounds to whom I have immense gratitude. My many passions include trees, singing, biking, travel and dark chocolate.
