I believe that all of us share a calling to use our gifts in ways that make the world better. A focus of my personal calling is to use psychological research to better understand how people can approach work and life with purpose. In doing so, I hope to help bridge the gap between the science and the people who stand to benefit from it.  Part of that means getting the word out, and part of it means developing tools and resources to help people understand how they are unique, navigate challenges and barriers, and contribute in meaningful, satisfying ways to the common  good. This website summarizes these efforts. Check it out, and join in!
