Personal Cartography

You’re here. You want to be there.

But how?

You want a map (or at least, you know you need one), but don’t want to follow someone else’s path. You want to make your own.

Maybe you know where you are, or where you’ve been, but aren’t sure what “there” looks like — or which “there” is right for you.
Maybe you know where you’re going, but aren’t sure where you are right now — or how the two connect.
Maybe you just can’t figure out the route — or how to stay on it.

That’s what Personal Cartography is all about: giving you skills, tools, and ideas to help you find your way – not just a way – to get from here to there.

It’s what I’m about, too: helping people and organizations who want to change find the way to get there that makes the most of who and what they are, and of who and what they want to be.

I often describe myself as an “intellectual magpie”: I find what shines in ideas, people, and organizations and then figure out how to build that into a basis for change. To me, change is what it’s really all about. Any goal we want to achieve, any step we want to take, any difference we want to make… it all comes down to making change happen in ourselves, and in the world around us.

At various points (and often all at once!) I’m a consultant, a strategist, a writer, a speaker, and a Weight Watchers leader. I’m also a wife, mother, daughter, sister, colleague, mentor, and friend.
