I am the smarts behind S*Marts Consulting. My personal mojo is a mix of science, advocacy, self-awareness, curiosity, and a keen sense of humor.
I am committed to creating a world in which each of us brings our whole self to our work, and each of has the opportunity to work in the way that brings out our best results.
I combine the critical thinking skills of a scientist with my experience as a student and teacher of self-defense, meditation, and personal development. I bring a clear focus on what works to create real change for my clients. My work is flavored with humor and an insatiable curiosity about the world and the people in it.
I work with organizations to:
Create a safe and welcoming environment at professional and scholarly meetings and conferences.
Address challenges and obstacles to moving beyond diversity to authentic inclusion
Clear up communication glitches to improve teamwork and productivity
Facilitate staff and members learning to recognize and intervene to prevent and stop harassment and bullying in the workplace, at meetings and conferences, and beyond
Engage staff and members in challenging conversations around bias, privilege, and how to be an ally.
I earned my bachelor's degree at the University of Hertfordshire in the UK, and my doctorate at Duke University. I founded S*Marts Consulting, LLC in 2010.
