Faith is a recent 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.
In MPA, she found a calling and a new 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, 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, and other participatory leadership methodologies. She is currently attending Case Western Reserve University, Weatherhead School of Management, where she will attain a second Masters degree in Positive Organizational Development. She will be in classes with David Cooperider, Richard Boyatizis, and other leaders in the Organizational Development field.
