Leadership Development

Background in leadership development (Education and/or Experience):
I have a Master's degree in International Organization and Leadership from the University of San Francisco. I have developed and published parent leadership development curricula for the Parents Leadership Action Network and the East Bay Asian Youth Center, both based in Oakland CA. I founded my own consulting practice in 2000 specializing in community based research, evaluation, training and educational design and have consulted numerous public service organizations dedicated to improving outcomes through leadership development models for children, youth, and families both domestically and internationally.
Current leadership development work (Roles and/or Positions):
Currently, I am serving as a Coach and Facilitator for a Board of Directors transition for the East Bay Asian Youth Center/EBAYC. As a recipient of the Haas Jr. Flexible Leadership Award, EBAYC is building the leadership capacity of a 2/3 majority grassroots parents and youth Board of Directors. I am currently also providing consulting services in evaluation to LeaderSpring, and in partnership with LLC, the CA Endowment Boundaries Crossing Leadership Initiative.
