Read information about the authorI am a graduate of Haverford College (1983) and the University of Pennsylvania Law School (1986). In 1993, following a successful career both in private practice and as a Philadelphia prosecutor, I was awarded a Kellogg Foundation National Leadership Program Fellowship. I studied community leadership and its relation to improving quality of life. Based upon this work, in collaboration with Lynne Abraham (mentor, colleague and friend), in 1995 I founded I-LEAD, Inc., a school for community leadership development that has served several thousand emerging leaders across Pennsylvania through its affiliation with Pennsylvania Weed and Seed, and its development of an accredited Associate Degree program in Leadership.
My personal mission in life is to liberate creative leadership for the common good.
In 2002, in recognition of my work on behalf of Pennsylvania communities, I was awarded an Eisenhower Fellowship, which I used to study leadership and its impact on economic and community development in Turkey. In 2009, in recognition of my work in community leadership and education, I was named an Ashoka Fellow by the Ashoka Global Funds for Social Change. Ashoka is an international community of the world’s leading social entrepreneurs. I am a teacher at heart, frequently consulted as a speaker, serving on panel discussions and contributing regularly via blogs and articles posted through the Ashoka network, the Kellogg Leadership Alliance and the Philadelphia Social Innovations Journal.
I am the author of Genership: Beyond Leadership Toward Liberating the Creative Soul, now available in print and e-book formats. I am also the author of the novel Queen of Angels, forthcoming in 2016.
