More About My Work to Date

I’m privileged to have had attended Smith College where I earned a B.A. in Government in 2005. Since my early days in business publishing in Boston, I’ve been steeped in all things process design. I spent five years in the Boston startup scene heading up the editorial side of The New Prosperity Initiative, a nonprofit startup I co-founded that was dedicated to knowledge sharing in the social justice space. I’ve worked as an editor and strategist in the systems thinking community, with long stints at two very different systems thinking organizations, the The Lean Enterprise Institute and The Berkana Institute. In the Art of Hosting community of practice, I learned how to convene and host cross-sector gatherings and strategic conversations. My passion for social justice eventually led me to women’s leadership work. I spent nearly two years working with Take The Lead, first as a consultant and later as Director of Strategy and Partnerships. Today I work as a freelance writer/editor and consultant with a variety of organizations, and I am also Co-Founder of Feminists at Work where I teach feminist business practice from a systems thinking perspective. I’m proud to be an advisor for Wonder Women of Boston
