Show Up. Breathe. Practice. Listen. Repeat.
Cartographer and curator of culture to effect more intentional, empathic and sustainable change in complex situations, with a variety of stakeholders, across sectors. Systemic social change and process design thinker: My experience runs the gamut from trauma-informed yoga therapy, education & training to critical design-thinking processes for avoidable mismanagement of resources and sustainable outcomes. I apply innate, experiential understanding of complex concepts in functional physiology and medicine, the behavioral sciences and social-emotional learning to the field of preventative, public health, medical, emergent and critical care, policies and services. And I have long been guided by a personal belief that work and personal life are not separate from one another; that the former is intricately tied to the latter by a sense of purpose that elevates one’s dedication to the whole.
The vision of the Mandala Project is to elevate individual and collective social-emotional well-being, build connected community, encourage creative and inclusive engagement, and enhance professional work-life balance in high-stakes, performance-based professions. Our design thinking processes are iterative, flexible and focused on effective communication and collaboration between designers and service-users, with an emphasis on bringing ideas to life based on how real users think, feel and behave.
