Mentors and Inspirations

Parker J. Palmer has been a huge influence on me for many years. From his books to his writing found on On Being, he speaks from the soul and reminds us how important it is to develop ourselves as authentic leaders and teachers. I first heard of his work in college, when I was required to read A Courage to Teach, and later was excited to stumble upon A Hidden Wholeness while perusing the book store at Laurelhurst College. He speaks from the soul and has greatly influenced my desire to move forward in speaking my own truth.
