Healthy Communities Consultant
Guiding individuals and organizations in positive directions
I’ve been enjoying traveling this Spring/Summer, assisting Tribal Health organizations in promoting well-being in their communities. Looking at growing the good, utilizing a bright-spots based approach is crucial to not get lost in the hopeless abyss, the challenges many of our communities face. Often, under our noses, are things that are working. Similar to building a fire, there are often hot embers, positive happenings, that can be used to re-ignite the fire of hope in community. Resilience that we can learn from and be inspired by. What is working in your community? What assets have we possibly overlooked or undervalued? What can we build upon, grow to enhance wellness for our communities’ future?
