A Breakdown of the Hardest Question Ever Posed to Me

The hardest question ever posed to me required me to upend a life-long belief system and rewrite the world as I knew it. The question was this: “How do you define success?” Wait, there is more than one way to define success?

Give What You Need

Six months of staying home with my two young children to keep all of us safe has traveled the full spectrum of emotions.

An Essay to the Future

As “normal” life comes to a halt, I can’t help but appreciate the moment of pause. It has helped me come to terms with the fact that “normal” life wasn’t normal at all. I hope we rebuild our lives remembering what was most important to us when things got scary. Our health. Our families. Our safety. And that we felt seen, understood, and loved by someone.

How companies obstruct us from bringing our whole selves to work

If we want people to feel whole that means that they can come to work, just as they are. Our organizations have some work to do to create environments at work where we can all let our humanity show. The messiness will be worth the reward of our collective wholeness.
