Focus Intent provides team and meeting energizers; alignment and creativity facilitation; and new-conversation starters.

I create interactive workshops and guide discussions to improve an organization’s performance. I help build effective teams. I do staff development, strategic planning, and meeting facilitation.


Focus Intent offers on- and off-site programs throughout West Virginia and the Mid-Atlantic, including: Maryland, Washington D.C., North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, North Carolina, and Kentucky and beyond.

I love my home state.

I’m surrounded by two thrilling National Park System rivers and some of the best outdoor adventures on the east coast. I work throughout West Virginia to support leaders in their development of strong communities and organizations. I am committed to helping those in our state that are working hard everyday to overcome challenges… from fifth generation to newly arrived mountaineers.


Curiosity is great!
You have questions and I have answers.
