“I believe if you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”

Wayne Dyer

Here are some things that I love…

Family

Summer vacations involved my parents loading me and my two brothers into the car or motorhome and taking a week long road trip adventure in the US or Canada. Driving, rather than flying hundreds and thousands of miles, inspired curiosity about what we would see and learn while on the road. My two brothers were my intrepid fellow adventurers through childhood and into our college years. These days, I love spending quality time with family that includes my growing-up-too fast adult nephews.

Lake Superior

I was born in northern Minnesota, not far from the shining waters of beautiful Lake Superior and her beautiful north shore. She was my perspective giver while growing up, and is still one of my favorite places to be in the whole world.

Friends

Life is richer and better with friendship.  The ones who are there when times are tough.  The ones that are the first to want to celebrate a success.   The ones that can make you laugh. The ones that are there for you when there are tears.  I have amazing friends of all ages across the globe.

Walking

Walking is my happiest form of meditation. And as a bonus, I solve a lot of problems while I walk.

Reading

The gift of armchair adventures was mine from an early age.   I was an early reader, thanks in part to our parents reading to us from the start. We also were fortunate with a great library (one of the many Carnegie libraries)  — a truly magical place complete with a glass floor and a stuffed owl. It was my Hogwarts. One of my most vivid memories is of being able to get my library card, and how printing my name was part of that rite of passage.

Wales

I ended up participating in an exchange program to Carmarthen, Wales, United Kingdom for a semester my junior year of college.  That experience remains one of the most life changing/ life impacting events of my journey so far. That trip was just the beginning of my adventures on my own.  My world got bigger and smaller at the same time

Nature

The outdoors was my playground growing up, and nature became a part of my DNA.  My imagination was inspired by our woods, and the big rock (truly a boulder) that I used to go and sit on.  That rock was one of my best thinking places.

Teaching

I have been learning and teaching since I was knee high to a grasshopper.  

Curiosity

Which is part of why some of my favorite questions are: What if? Why not? & How might we?

Hearts

I find them everywhere. They are reminders of checking in with where I am.  Am I noticing and valuing what is right in front of me?

Georgia Green, Founder & CEO, Adonai Consulting 

I highly recommend working with Maile.

“Maile met me where I was in my leadership development process, and helped me unpack my vulnerabilities in order to see – and appreciate – my strengths.  I developed action plans that I am still implementing today.  If you are looking for an executive coach to help you break through barriers and get to the next level, I highly recommend working with Maile.”
