After 15 years of stewarding Authentic Leadership in Action (ALIA) Institute and working with some of the most inspiring thought leaders and social innovators in the world, she keen to "bring it all home"? to Nova Scotia. Her current work is with Engage Nova Scotia, where she is listening for stories that want to be told and connections that need to be made. She is drawn to people and places that honour the rich traditions of the past while venturing into the wide unknown and critical challenges of the future. The "red thread"? running through her life's work is a love of learning in all its depths and dimensions.
