Here is your opportunity to dig a little deeper into who I am and my professional background. This is also the right place to drop me a line.
As a community organizer, educator, psychotherapist and organizational leader, I come to my work with a continued commitment to engage people in learning activities that move them into understanding critical social and cultural issues.
I have delivered trainings, lectures and workshops, and developed curricula at the University, community, professional and corporate levels locally, regionally, and nationally for more than twenty-five years.
A few highlights in my career include serving as staff at OutFront MN, founding Director of the GLBT Programs Office at the University of Minnesota and cochair of the Board of Directors of the National Gay & Lesbian Task Force. I am also adjunct faculty at the University of Minnesota where I teach in Gender, Sexuality, and Women Studies and Social Work.
In 1996, I was chosen to be Grand Marshall of the Twin Cities GLBT Pride, and in 2008 I was awarded Quorum's Lifetime Achievement Award for service to the LGBT community. In 2000, I was awarded a Bush Leadership Fellowship to study organizational development of social movement organizations.
While I am passionate about my work, my spare time involves endorphine rushes from long distance bicycling, losing myself in cooking, and getting my hands dirty in my garden (where I grow more tomatoes than any one person could possibly eat).
I am based in Minneapolis, MN and you can reach me at:
