A Bit About Me

My name is Taeli (pronounced Tay-lee) and I am passionate about creativity, brainstorming, and collaborating to develop solutions that improve the health of businesses and nonprofits. I enjoy supporting others who are supporting others, creating opportunities, and spreading kindness.

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my daughter and family, practicing various artistic hobbies, and visiting walking trails.
