If you have found me here it could be for a number of wildly different reasons, as my days have me involved in activities that many people might not put together.


I am a longtime practitioner of mindfulness and I’ve been introducing it to kids and grown-ups for a decade. I also help corporations re-envision the way they listen, communicate, and conduct meetings. My years-long training and Certification from Mindful Schools was a sublime way to prepare me for teaching kids; and my Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Teacher Training from Brown University Mindfulness Center continues to be a transformative experience. I’m profoundly grateful to train with the most beautiful minds in the field.


I’ve been writing and editing nonfiction books, articles, website content, curricula, and assessments for two decades. My PhD in English Education from New York University was a wonderful foundation and training ground for this work.

Fractional COO

I am a fractional Chief Operating Officer for small businesses (Mary Martin LLC). This means I figure out what needs to be done and how to do it, then hire the right people for the right seats and train them. And when things don’t go the way they should, I identify why and find/create a solution. I’ve been doing this for over a decade and I enjoy the puzzle that is operations and am frequently referred to as “the glue person” who keeps it all together.
