For many years I worked in Institutional Research in different higher educational institutions. I was also a part time consultant, evaluating social service programs. Over the past 15 years, I've developed an expertise in conflict resolution, as a mediator, program manager, program evaluator, and trainer. I work with families and work groups/workplace conflicts. Currently, I run "Women & Negotiation" practice groups and train mediators in Mindfulness and Mediation. I've lived in New Mexico for the past 20 years.
