j. lyn simpson is an artist, entrepreneur, and idealist whose vision includes the integration of creativity and spiritual inquiry as catalysts for personal and collective transformation. She has dedicated her life and career to improving lives, strengthening communities, and adding value to organizations. She has a PhD in Organizational Communication from the University of Colorado at Boulder and has spent decades writing, teaching, and growing leaders who have a bold vision for realizing the full potential of being human. When she isn’t working with mission-driven leaders to amplify their impact, leading her team, or raising her family, she enjoys exploring life’s persistent questions through art, poetry, and creative writing, and spending as much time in nature as she can conjure.
