About Me

With over 20 years of experience working in and with nonprofits, academic institutions, public agencies, and private business, I am here to help you and your organization thrive. I have worked in environment and natural resources, climate adaptation, public health, green building and community planning, and organizational development. My approach is pragmatic and collaborative, and usually approached with at least a little humor.

I am currently based in southeast Wyoming, and work with communities across the country. When I am not working, I am exploring in the nearby mountains, planning our next adventure, learning new hobbies, and playing with our two dogs.

Lupine Collaborative is a Woman Owned Small Business, and SBA HUBZone Certified.




Deb is a unique package of very smart, funny, engaging, extremely strategic, and a great group facilitator — all in one dynamo of a person. She brings a wealth of practical tools, a strong technical background, structural and organizational thinking, and experience with a wide variety of organizations, communities, and people.  I highly recommend her for groups undertaking a collaborative, public engagement, and/or strategic planning process.

I have known and worked with Deb, both as a colleague and client of hers, for about 10 years. Through every interaction I have found that Deb's ability to focus on the core of an issue, her willingness to find creative and realistic solutions, and her honed skill at working with diverse types of people, makes her an asset to any team or conversation. I appreciate her honesty, awareness, and pragmatic approach. It is for these reasons and more that I find myself working with her again and again, and am always happy when that is the case.
