Be The Change

Happy Thanksgiving!

Welcome! Whether you are here for career coaching, to explore conflict resolution and peacebuilding work, or to learn more about international education, I’m glad you have arrived!

I’m based in the Washington, DC area and work with clients and partners by Zoom during the pandemic. My career has spanned college and university teaching, practicing law, teaching in the Fulbright program, think tank work, and now career coaching and consulting.

I’ve been interviewed on The TODAY Show, featured in the Washington Post Magazine, and given a TEDx talk. I’ve published op-eds in The New York Times, Baltimore Sun, and other publications. I’ve enjoyed writing about the fields I’ve been part of, publishing three books – Peace Jobs: A Student’s Guide to Starting a Career Working for Peace (IAP 2016), Peacebuilding in Community Colleges: A Teaching Resource (USIP Press 2013), and Legal Research and Writing (Delmar 1996). I’m also the president and co-founder of the Forage Center for Peacebuilding and Humanitarian Education, Inc.

I look forward to working together. To schedule an appointment, just reach out here. You can learn more about my work and background here.


I work with organizations, businesses, not for profits, and educational institutions looking to make change and advance their objectives. Find out about consulting.
