Problem solving is my m.o.

Better systems. 
Healthier communities.


Assuring public health programs and policies create equitable public health systems.

Public health reflects a complex system, including a range of policies, programs, stakeholders, communities, and other systems related to health care delivery, housing, transportation, education, environment, and more. To be truly successful, public health programs and policies must recognize how to fit into the broader ecosystem, while understanding how to leverage opportunities that overcome challenges. 

How all the pieces of public health fit together can seem like a puzzle. Solving this puzzle reveals opportunities for creative approaches toward building better systems, stronger communities and healthier people. 

For nearly two decades, I've helped individuals and organizations at the local, state, national and international levels better understand their work and how to  so they can improve it. This requires recognizing how programs, policies, and stakeholders interact within and between broader systems. It’s complicated. But understanding these interactions is key to identify opportunities for innovative, efficient, and creative solutions.
