I am a retired public library administrator with 30 years of experience in Canada and the United States with a specific expertise in fund raising. Over the past 10 years, I have also led faith-based retreats, provided career guidance for LIS (Library & Information Studies) professionals, and taught library management studies at the graduate level.
My passion is helping community-based organizations develop a user-driven vision followed by evidence-based practice. Another way I help build community is to foster individual personal and professional growth through coaching and group retreats in various settings.
I am an avid traveler, reader, canoeist, and yoga student. My family includes my spouse Ted, a theatrical rigging salesperson, and two fine young men, one a music educator, and the other a software developer with Flair.
