Through immersion in other cultures, meeting new people, and seeing new things, I learned that change happens every day, while you are living your life, doing simple things like drawing with a child, or having coffee with a struggling parent, or offering support to someone suffering from illness. Change must happen within each individual, so that that person can then influence another, and another, even in small ways. I enjoy working with clients that are ambitious, motivated, and accepting of challenges in order to make change happen.”
