Professional Biography I have experience as a facilitator and mediator working on a wide range of public policy issues, including salmon recovery and the Endangered Species Act, forest management, farmland preservation, land use planning, facility siting, regional transportation system planning, and health care.  Recent work as mediator includes success in reaching consensus with diverse groups of participants on highly charged issues.  I have extensive experience facilitating public processes, as well as internal board and staff processes. My 30-years of experience as consultant, community board member, CEO of regional non-profit, local government staffer and aide to an elected official, provide first-hand understanding of the perspectives often represented in a facilitation or mediation.  Style is characterized by establishing process that is perceived as fair and credible, working hard to maintain neutral position, creating common understanding of issues, agressively listening for seeds of solutions, frequent communication with parties to explore options for solutions, and finding solutions that will last.
