Back in 2000 I began a disciplined study of wisdom, particularly looking at the nature of wisdom in nurses who were identified by people who knows them as being wise. In 2006 I founded Wisdom Out, which is a hub of information, practices, and processes about the nature of wisdom in leaders, individuals, organizations, and couples. Since 2006 I've explored the extraordinary form of resilience known as Post Traumatic Growth and linked it to leadership.

I earned my Ph.D. in Organizational Learning at the University of New Mexico (USA), my master’s at Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago Illinois, and my bachelors degree at Illinois State University in Bloomington-Normal, IL.
