Professional and Personal Development
I have 20+ years experience in education and training, gerontology and career development. The common thread throughout my career is a passion for lifelong learning. I've created. personal enrichment and professional development programs in a variety of topics.
My personal enrichment programs include Cognitive Fitness, Becoming a Smarter, More Effective Learner, Encore Career Strategies and Using Positive Psychology to Promote Wellbeing and Success.
I've also provides professional development programs for people who want to maximize their own effectiveness on the job, with an emphasis on skills training for people who serve older adults, As a gerontologist, I have special expertise in healthier living as we age, as well as helping organizations build a more age-friendly environment for the people they serve. I facilitate empathy-building aging simulation experiences and strategy sessions to enhance services to their constituencies.
Programs can be delivered in-person or online.
"Hope does not lecture. She engages participants in a conversation about goals, families, work and the benefits of lifelong learning. She respects the diverse opinions that are inherent in San Francisco's adult learning population and our program participants responded positively to this."
