Louise builds a bridge wherever she sees one is needed.
An innovative conflict transformation trailblazer in her predominantly adversarial and emotionally fearful legal profession, mother to five fantastic children, and married for over 35 years, Louise was already a beacon of inspiration and excellence in her community when she got the phone call that changed everything.
When her son was injured in a catastrophic and life-changing accident, Louise brought that same force-of-nature energy and devotion to advocating for what was possible for her son and his future. Open to alternative methods to keep him alive and ways to wean him off of life support using homeopathic and other integrative remedies, Louise was surprised to find that the medical field seemed closed off to exploring every available option. The same attitudes and rigidities which had been a red flag to her in the legal profession also seemed prominent in medicine.
In her usual bridge-building way, with the same skill, openness, courage, tenacity, and faith, Louise began opening the arena for her son’s healing through both traditional and alternative medical approaches and engaging in painful but honest conversations about advocacy and hope.
