Trained in psychology, she has more than 30 years' experience in her field as an acclaimed national speaker, trainer, coach and author. During her tenure at City College of San Francisco, which has arguably the most diverse population of any college in the United States, she rose to the challenge of helping people connect and communicate across differences. Before her early “retirement”, she not only taught psychology, but also provided training for major organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area on leadership, teambuilding, stress management, communication and conflict, and gender issues. During those training sessions, she honed the skills necessary to make sure that all participants were comfortable contributing to the interaction. After retirement, she wrote The Confident Introvert, written to help introverts, who are as much as 51% of the population, thrive in a culture that idealizes extroversion. She then realized that many leaders have no idea how they much they are alienating what she calls the “quietly brilliant” nor how much stress these individuals suffer in a rapidly-paced, outgoing workplace, and she returned to speaking and training to help introverts and extroverts connect and communicate.
