Profile Information

Welcome! FierySpirits is for activists and professionals who are building vibrant, resilient rural communities. Tell us a little about why you'd like to join?
I have both a professional and personal interest in the development of strong, vibrant rural communities. I often provide support to a range of communities using Asset Based Community Development approaches in Australia and internationally. WWW. Inspiringcommunities.com
About Me (areas of expertise/interest I can share)
I live in the small community of Jilliby in NSW Australia with my partner two daughters, horses and other pets. I am a principal of ABCD Global Consulting and a director of Inspiring Communities, Chairperson of the Asia Pacific ABCD Network and a Faculty member of the ABCD Institute at the Northwestern University, Chicago.
I have a strong belief that vibrant, strong communities and nations need a strong civil society; that sustainable communities are built from the inside out and need the passion, ideas, skills, assets, culture, and energy of everyone in the community to create inclusive, vibrant, enterprising communities.

These ideas have led to the establishment of Inspiring Communities to promote these important ideas with the necessary facilitation, creativity and skills.

We offer support in capacity building, promotion of innovation, strategic planning, community development skills, evaluation, community education/organising support to NGOs, communities, local, state and national governments.

We also provides mentoring, facilitation and educational opportunities using Asset Based Community Development, ABCD for Inclusion of people with disability, and Appreciative Inquiry methodologies.
