This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one, the being a force of nature, instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community, and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can.  -George Bernard Shaw

Angela has worked in schools for over 20 years, and has a passion for empowering individuals and organizations to flourish. As Director of Marketing & Communications at an independent school, Angela’s work was recognized with a Gold Brilliance Award for outstanding school marketing by InspirED School Marketers. As a yearbook publishing consultant and workshop director for 17 years, Angela taught graphic design, journalism, marketing, and leadership to high school and middle school students throughout Oregon & SW Washington. Angela has also been a motivational speaker in high schools; led transformational communication and leadership courses to adults; is a wellbeing coach; and is the founder of a creative agency that provides nonprofits and small businesses with marketing and graphic design support. 

After two years of full-time international travel and world schooling, Angela and her family recently returned to the Pacific Northwest — choosing to make their home on San Juan Island. Angela is loving life exploring the island with her family — husband Christopher, Spring Street 6th grader Jamison, 4th grader Oliver, and their new puppy, Alice. She can often be found hiking the island trails, on the yoga mat, playing board games, or digging through the shelves of books at the two island book stores.
