As an evolutionary biologist, Rebecca brings refreshing insights from the biological perspective to help her clients make sense of the "whys?" underlying our behaviors as individuals and institutions. Key highlights of her signature workshops include:
- Reconciling stone-aged brains to operate more efficiently in a modern world
- Understanding biologically driven behaviors and helping them work for you, not against you
- Building cooperation, and stimulating creativity and innovation by understanding the underlying mechanisms that regulate these processes at a neurological level
- Optimizing the work environment to allow the greatest potential from all employees
A native New Yorker, Rebecca currently resides in South Carolina and is finishing her book Instinctive Cognition, which highlights how to live with intention beyond our subconscious minds.
