"The art of communication is the language of leadership."
LEE MOZENA, MA
I grew up navigating between western Pennsylvania
Appalachian and Rust Belt cultures- where the first day of deer-hunting season was a school holiday, In this 100% European American milieu, gender, class, and religion were differences that mattered.
After a stint in copywriting I turned to training and development; working with community-based organizations and family service providers to close gaps between mainstream systems and under-represented, (often minority) communities.
Zena Consulting was founded to address these same challenges in private and public sectors.

This Celtic shield design represents my heritage, the four directions, and my consulting process- which pulls together separate ideas into something new, whole and stronger.
Universal to humankind, knots are practical and concrete- We use them to tie shoes, hair, boats, etc. Knots are also abstract- they symbolize God or the divine. As such, they're also instruments of prayer and meditation.
