My practice as a conflict resolution professional is driven by a core belief that everything of importance happens within the context of interpersonal relationships. My background in psychology led to an interest in the field of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). In the late 1980’s I served as a founding member and first Board President of the Kitsap County Dispute Resolution Center. Over the past 20 years, I have continued to serve the field in a leadership capacity through my affiliation as Board President for the Washington Mediation Association, and as Senior Consultant to Consortium for Appropriate Dispute Resolution in Special Education (CADRE). I am the Principal at Sound Options Group, LLC, coordinating the design, implementation and delivery of all services. Sound Options Group, LLC is responsible for the delivery of all special education mediation services for the State of Washington and consults nationally in the design and delivery of ADR systems. Prior to entering the field of Alternative Dispute Resolution, I spent fifteen years in Public Education, eleven of those years working in Special Education.
