who we are


Table Fort is strategy coaching and consulting for individuals and organizations. We champion the work of tinkerers, creative visionaries, social innovators, collaborative leaders and imaginative trouble makers.

She fires up transformational change in individuals and nurtures vital, responsive, healthy organizations, networks and communities.
