Position or Title Senior Partner

Professional Biography I have almost 25 years experience doing mediation, facilitation, process design, and conflict assessment in local communities, at the state and national level, and internationally - working on issues as varied as wildlife and fisheries management, AIDs policy, nuclear facility decommissioning, forestry, and biotechnology.  I believe my clients would say that I am quiet and confident, with a poised, easy-going demeanor.  I am a good listener, scrupulously neutral, respectful of all parties, and known for integrity.  I work with patience and persistence, am solution oriented, and will get the job done. I am very assertive when necessary, as well as organized, efficient, and thorough.  I relish complex cases; and have the knowledge and tools to work simultaneously on the political, legal, substantive, procedural, and interpersonal aspects of the case.  I would underscore the value of being part of ahighly respected organization; one that enables me to draw upon talented colleagues and support staff as needed.
