I’ve mediated hundreds of cases over the years in Oregon and California. My cases in the family mediation sector have included comprehensive divorce settlements, family meditations involving real estate, wills and estates, family businesses, parent/teen issues, and other family issues. In the employment and workplace sector, I have mediated conflicts between staff members and within and between groups, wrongful termination claims, Americans with Disability Act conflicts, and other issues, and have facilitated numerous management team and board meetings and meetings within and between departments and teams. In the public dispute resolution area, you can see a list of some of the projects I’ve been involved in HERE.
I am a frequent presenter at conferences and for professional groups and corporations. Though I am based in Eugene, Oregon, I now offer my services regionally, nationally, and internationally via online video platform.

In addition to a Master’s degree in Conflict Resolution and 600+ hours of additional training over the years, I continue to read in and study the fields of conflict, negotiation, and conflict resolution with an abiding passion.

Prior to my conflict resolution career, I co-founded and grew a business from zero to 150+ employees doing business internationally. That experience gave me first-hand, inside understanding of the dynamics and stresses of the workplace, the challenges of management and supervision, and the pressures and demands of business partnerships.
Being the parent of three grown children has been no small part of my education and learning.
