Good to meet you!
I offer independent consulting services that harness 20 years of experience with editing, technical writing, planning, and facilitating complex decisions. Attentive to details and passionate about underlying goals and collaborative engagement, I have degrees in English Literature from Harvard University and City and in Regional Planning from the University of California, Berkeley.
Over my career, I have created reports, applications, articles, slide decks, procedural processes, and technical analyses across a range of industries, disciplines, and cultures, including for entrepreneurial start-ups, global technology companies, government agencies, and academic research centers.
See my LinkedIn profile for a sample of professional experience.
I have traveled to six continents and currently live, with my husband, in northern California. In my spare time, I enjoy growing healthy plants, binge-reading detective novels, volunteering with kids, and walking across countries.
Values that motivate my work include:
Accountability and transparency
Clear and collaborative communications
Connecting ideas creatively
SUBJECT MATTER EXPERTISE
Risk and resilience
Climate change and adaptation
Economic cost-benefit analysis
