Reimagining Business Structures
Taking cues from ecology to cultivate work cultures of cooperative power
Do you know how bees communicate?
Sure, most know that they dance out their news, but that’s just the beginning of what is remarkable. Bees share information through dance, investigation and verification. Then the bees work together to build on each other’s knowledge, building consensus before making decisions.
I never intended for my beekeeping work to spill into organizational consulting
The longer I’ve worked as an apiarist, the more nature taught me about organization decision-making.
I’ve worked as an Executive Director, Evaluator, Developmental Specialist, and Educator. Throughout these roles, I’ve led strategic planning efforts, designed evaluation systems, managed large grants, and crafted innovative programming. I’ve collaborated with community partners for using grassroots strategies. In all of these roles, I’ve seen how building strategies for effective cooperation & communication can improve the workplace.
We’re in a state of constant production, preventing us from pausing to reflect. When we fail to stop, we can’t evaluate the impact of our actions. In organizations, that can lead to burn out, ineffective teams, and interpersonal conflict.
Cooperative, equitable working structures
While corporations often need hierarchies and chains of command, these structures aren’t necessary in every context. Moreover, they often deter progress, stifle creativity, and create toxic organization cultures. With a focus on bettering workplace environments through organic modeling, I work with growth-oriented businesses who realize that their success is rested on their team. You work with people, not resources.

Each business is unique and requires different support to thrive.
