Faith is a graduate of the Master of Public Administration program at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington. She focused her studies on organizational development, design thinking, systems thinking, and participatory leadership practices. She also holds a second Masters degree in Positive Organizational Development from Case Western Reserve University, Weatherhead School of Management. There she learned from David Cooperider, Richard Boyatizis, and other leaders in the Organizational Development field, widening her knowledge, deepening her practice, and preparing her to make substantive change.
Faith has a robust understanding of the systems which define our world and the work we try to do. Inspired by the work of Peter Senge, Otto Scharmer, Peter Block, Margaret Wheatley and Randoph T. Hester, whose enlightened visions of systems change, design, and community engagement transformed her experience, Faith is looking to help heal broken communities. Her passion for transformation and the importance of truth telling have run headlong into institutionalized processes and motivated her to begin consulting.
Faith is trained in Appreciative Inquiry, Restorative Justice, Holacracy, design thinking, systems thinking, the Art of Hosting, Intentional Change Theory, Resonant Leadership, and Organizational Diversity practices. She also holds a certificate in Emotionally Intelligent Leadership and Executive Coaching.
