Professional Facilitation

Create action based on participation, inspiration and fresh perspective.


Sustainable meeting outcomes need solid buy-in and active participation. Michelle gets you to results while her warmth and sensibility put your group at ease. She brings structure and focus so you can tackle complex (even polarizing) issues as effectively and painlessly as possible.

Her common-sense approaches instill confidence so that even the most disagreeable participants tend to engage and contribute. Understanding the dynamics in firm management and operations, she diplomatically yet effectively challenges owners/stakeholders to assure that ideas, plans and decisions are realistic for the highest likelihood of execution.

Michelle facilitates processes including: strategic or long-range planning; industry vertical “futuring” sessions, identifying a firm’s purpose or “why,” marketing or industry niche planning, and process mapping.

She’s an IAF Certified Professional Facilitator, a credential earned through the International Association of Facilitators (IAF). Deeply committed to this art, she served on IAF’s global board of directors and was IAF’s U.S. Regional Representative for several years.

Michelle facilitating a group


Michelle has a way of helping people see familiar things in new ways. Why is this important?

To inspire people to willingly change habits or behaviors, you have to help them adjust or enhance their beliefs. “Beliefs” are adopted from theories, judgments, and subjective experiences. Beliefs aren’t facts, they are as unique as the humans who hold them. New perspectives can help expand a limiting belief.

With “change” as our profession’s theme for the foreseeable future, firms need all the inspiration and new perspective they can get.

If you’re a CPA firm leader looking to get hearts and minds invested in your next major initiative, let Michelle introduce the concepts in a way that opens minds and engages your team. 

If you’re a CPA-industry group, association, or state society, Michelle’s the thought-provoking teacher who helps practitioners see and appreciate the “whys” behind the “whats” and find inspiring new perspectives.

Tapping her facilitation skills, she encourages constructive new insights through self-discovery which helps any initiative “stick.”

Relating and connecting, she eases fears, replacing them with a sense of possibility and moves your group to actionable next steps.

See her speaking page and bio, or just call to discuss your needs.

“Sometimes it takes someone from ‘outside’ to affect change inside the firm. That’s exactly what happened. Michelle inspired us. Her ability to connect and relate created the perfect environment, allowing us to open our minds.”
