I am a possibilities thinker and a coach to leaders in organizations.

I facilitate retreats where people grow into their best selves.

I speak to audiences to make them laugh, get them grounded and inspire them to act more boldly for themselves.

I help people Struggle Less, so they can BE more.

I have my own company that works with corporations, nonprofits, churches, goverment and schools, known variously as Creative Resources, Inc., Plake & Company and Creative Edge

I co-lead an organization that brings professional development and renewal to the field of youth development, called The Journey.

I love music, laughter, wine and any opportunity to see people really shine.

I look forward to working with you.
