Utilizing a variety of team assessment tools, he gathers individual information, but also analyzes and presents team reports, which illustrate the critical role each person plays in the overall team dynamic.  

Whether a small or large group, your team members will gain a better understanding of their personal assessment profile and their team’s. In exploring their own as well as other team member’s behavioral styles, both strengths and weaknesses, teams are able to better appreciate their diversity, and develop strategies to meet the demands of specific environments and challenges.

Full disclosure, I am Sara’s daughter and I’m so proud and grateful, as her right hand, to have worked on various projects with her. I love re-imagining story, developing new concepts, and working with talent to emanate their best selves for the finished product. I am a recent graduate of Ithaca College with a fine arts degree in Writing for Television, Film, and Emerging Media, and a minor in Women’s and Gender Studies.

I have a vulnerable passion for telling stories about women’s lives and social justice. Currently, I am the Media Producer for Beacon Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Summit where I edit, produce, and stream powerful virtual services every Sunday morning.

I am a trained musician and love jamming out to artists like Tame Impala, H.E.R., and Frank Ocean. Thanks to my Mom, my inspired love for singing and piano started young and it never stopped. Music is a huge part of my soul, it heals, it awakens, it lights my fire.

I have a tiny (OK, HUGE) obsession for Youtube’s beauty and foodie category as well as all things self-care. I adore animals, specifically my mini goldendoodle, Ellie, a furry bundle of love. Lastly, I believe the only good fast food chain out there is Popeye's and that oat milk hot cocoa is truly the only way to go.
