Creative Director -The Grove Consultants International
I've spent most of my professional career at The Grove Consultants International, a pioneer in the visual practice field. I joined in 1998 and have many enriching and learning experiences in the field of Organization Development. As Creative Director I have my hands in many projects — delivering on client needs, developing products and working with our internal marketing team.
I've had the pleasure of working with many clients on Storymap projects, bringing a sense of visual and narrative clarity to complex information. The process is not only about creating a communication piece, but also about facilitating engagement and learning for the client. I've been working on Storymap projects for over 20 years and each one is a unique and interesting challenge.
I also use my graphic design knowledge to develop posters, booklets and presentations for visually facilitated meetings.

I've collaborated on several published products including The Grove's Personal Compass and The Grove's Career Compass. Each book takes the reader through a visual templated process, making complex situations and decisions easier.
