Level-12 Educator: Alaska System for Early Education Development (SEED)
A 20 year career as a wilderness guide, academic, psychotherapist, professor, & healthcare executive... for the last ten years, I’ve been working in key program development and corporate leadership positions in Alaska. I’ve been able to design and develop programs and staff teams that are working on the cutting edge of clinical practice and tele-medicine. My teams have brought in approximately $6 million dollars in revenue for our clinical programs.
Building from the last decade’s successes, how to apply multi-million dollar corporate leadership strategies and pair them with tele-behavioral health and coaching models, I developed three outcomes: a streamlined and fully online practice for myself, professional development courses for clinicians/counselors, and I partnered with Greta Palmer to operate Adventure-Based Parenting: 12-Week Coaching Intensive, where we collaboratively work with parents to achieve family goals.
