How did you become involved with OCL? I participated in a CST class via Christ Church in Charlotte 3 or 4 years ago. I found the information to be transformative in multiple ways. When the opportunity came my way to become a Professor, it was a no-brainer as I wanted to be able to share what I had learned with others.
What is your hope for OCL? I believe the material is life changing. The more people that we equip with the tools, the better our communities can become. My hope is that OCL is able to disseminate this gift as wide spread as possible.
How do you most often find yourself using what you learned in CST? Daily! I have people in my life who are the opposite of me and style flexing is my go-to for keeping those relationships healthy.
Your favorite book and why. The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. I read it every year and every year I get something new out of it. I love it mainly because it’s a reminder that our dreams are worth fighting for no matter the obstacles we have to face along the way. If we want it badly enough, the universe conspires to help make it happen. Sometimes, though, that conspiring doesn’t feel good, but it’s all designed to move us to our highest and best self. I often need that reminder.
