After spending the early part of my career in public arts management, things shifted for me after the transformational experience of parenting a person with complex health care needs. For the past 10 years, I have worked to improve healthcare quality and equity both in the US where I’m from, and in Sweden where I now live.
Today I facilitate collaboration in multi-stakeholder communities and events, including researchers, policy makers, industry, civil society, clinicians and the public. Collaborative partners include Harvard Medical School, Dartmouth College, Karolinska Institutet, the National Institute for Children’s Healthcare Quality and The BMJ.
As a change agent, I love helping other change agents grow their courage and impact while sustaining their vocation. In my work, I draw on training in community organizing and systems transformation with Harvard Kennedy School of Government, in quality improvement with organizations such as the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, in mindfulness-based stress-reduction techniques through the Center for Mindfulness at the UMass Memorial Medical Center, and in reflective group programs as a facilitator-in-preparation through the Center for Courage & Renewal.
