Irene Salter, PhD, Certified

My 20+ year career has taken me from premier neuroscience labs to the middle school classroom, from a charter school superintendent’s desk to nonprofit board president, from ropes course leader to Exploratorium exhibit designer, from GEMS curriculum developer to university chairwoman. My superpower is seeing the inner light in leaders and their teams, and coaxing it to shine brighter. Mind-body medicine is a cornerstone of all my work — leadership coaching, facilitation, training, and support groups.
