Rocket Valley Solutions
My ongoing purpose is to gain knowledge, experience, and networks that will enhance my ability to contribute to the well-being of the communities where I work and live.
I have been working in agricultural communities in the Americas since 2005. I consult organizations and indivuals looking to make strategic changes in their businesses.
Since 2008, I have been leading international exchange programs in Latin America, primarily in Ecuador. These programs immerse participants in experiences that benefit sustainable community development.
Community Health & Development
My passion lies in supporting healthy communities. My pursuits focus on the tenets of social entrepreneurship. Everything I undertake concentrates on the impacts of people, planet, and profit.
“What’s in a name?”
This word has been prominent in many phases of my life. The most significant was when I learned about the Rocket Stove while promoting a version of it in Guatemala. It is extremely efficient and applicable to a variety of situations.
I feel alive in the mountains and consider many places to be my home. Ecuador, Guatemala, Puerto Rico, Colorado, the Appalachians, and my current home in the Green Mountains of Vermont all inspire me.
In 19 years of working in entreprenuerial development, my specialty lies within the situation of defining obstacles and creating solutions to overcome them.
