I believe in:
Power through collaboration
Our relationships to each other are paramount and the reason for being here.
I believe in people and their stories and that honest living is the cornerstone of our purpose.
We have a calling to be kind and to support each other with love and to create cultural environments that demonstrate justice, empowerment and equality.
my life fuels my purpose
I create circles of leadership not ladders and spaces of independence and community that honour our impact and nourish our purpose.
I believe and practice the path of creating safe spaces for honest human experiences to flourish and bloom. I build strong flexible robust environments/communities that celebrate people’s talents, support their dreams, and spark creative curiosity. I believe in truths and stories that form our unique beings. I ignite fires of justice and I stand up strong.
