“Deep and Simple is far more essential than Shallow and Complex.”
– Fred Rogers
I am here to engage with other professionals to help them create a preferred future involving life-long learning and health promoting activities. With humor and creativity, I will help others develop long-term plans for fulfilment and clarity.
With Inspero, I work with a collaborative group of innovative thinkers and doers to help dentists, dental teams and dental organizations realize their preferred futures. Our “deep and simple” process is rooted in decades of research and experience to help provide the appropriate guidance for anyone willing to commit to the process.
After an exciting four years of dental school at Southern Illinois University I spent a year in residency at the Denver VA Hospital. Opening a practice from scratch in the small mountain town of Frisco, CO taught me a lot about running a business, marketing, developing relationships with patients and community, forming a positive practice culture and so much more. Several moves later and now I call British Columbia home. I sold my practice in 2021 and fulling transitioned out of practice in 2022. I now get to get creative with people every day!
Active involvement in organized dentistry has been with me since dental school where I was the AADS (now ADEA) representative. Eventually, I found the AES in 2007. Shortly after joining I volunteered and soon became the Chair of the Exhibits committee. It was during this time that I met Dr. Bob Frazer and Dr. Dick Schirmer. They were getting ready to start a new Applied Strategic Plan (ASP) for the AES and asked me to Co-Chair the process. Through the ASP process I found a new passion that allowed me to fully express my love for learning, creativity, future-thinking and helping guide others.
I am grateful my experience has led me to the opportunity to add value to others!
In January 2022, Jason spoke to the Gentling Dental crew in Rochester, MN. Ryan Henrichsen requested a half day on Core Values and Emotional Intelligence. The team of 50+ was energetic and engaged throughout the interactive Thursday.
