Meet Lula

Lula is a connector, convener, builder, learner, and thought partner who thrives in exploring new spaces and creating innovative frameworks. 

She finds joy in collaborating with her peers as a thought partner and connector, fostering new understandings, learning opportunities, and creative processes.

With 14 years of experience as an expert organizational development consultant, certified coach, community engagement specialist, conflict resolution mediator, and thought-provoking facilitator, Lula brings a holistic approach to her work, prioritizing equity and inclusion. Throughout her childhood and career, she has been in environments where people who shared her background were often underrepresented. This background fuels her passion for creating change.

Lula is dedicated to helping great leaders build great organizations. From assisting leaders in envisioning the future of their organizations to coaching them in acquiring the skills needed for that visionary path, and from evaluating an organization's current culture to developing the training and policies that foster greater employee engagement, Lula considers the full scope of a company and its people.


She firmly believes that when individuals anchor themselves in their values and discover their voices, they can shape the life they desire and become the person they aspire to be
