About Carlee

For as long as I can remember, I have had a passion and a desire to lead, teach, and invest in others. Over the last decade I have focused on developing individuals and teams in settings ranging from after school programs to non profit board leaders.

Social-emotional competencies are at the heart of my approach as a facilitator, and I believe that these are the vital skills needed to develop as leaders, and as awesome humans!
I have developed a deep understanding and commitment to continuous quality improvement that has helped shape my approach to encouraging, challenging, and supporting individual and team growth.

Experience and Certifications

I have a proven track record of delivering high-quality youth programs and developing young professionals by delivering training to organizations such as the Boys & Girls Clubs of King County, Schools Out Washington, ARC, and the Beecher’s Pure Foods Kids Foundation, to name a few. 

My Approach

Learning and growth are best accomplished when done in partnership with others. We foster environments that value learning, bravery and curiosity focused on walking participants through a meaningful and engaged learning journey.


  • Engage in meaningful conversations and intentional reflection that center the experiences of the learner.
  • Craft customizable content that builds community among participants, is fun and informative and strengthens skills
  • No quick fixes! Learning is a journey and a commitment to continuous improvement both as individuals and the collective
