A courageous trailblazer, Bess has dared to stand alone and make decisions that allow her to follow her passion.
A courtroom lawyer at 24, the youngest partner at a cutting-edge law firm by 26, and with a career recognized by milestones of achievement, Bess realized that the courtroom never offered true resolution. It always left devastating wreckage behind and the human relationships remained broken.
So after years as an advocate in the courtroom, and a negotiator in boardrooms around the world, she followed her passion for understanding people and went to Harvard Law School to study conflict resolution in a new way. A way that begins with understanding the human story and the fear that hides beneath the surface, driving the conflict.
“Bess is a trailblazer. Her unique, whole, and deep approach to conflict and communications is refreshing, healing and transformational. She is highly intuitive, intelligent and a master of bringing love into difficult situations. I believe the world could change if all conflict was approached from her evolved perspective."
“Bess unravels layers of preconceptions people bring to their disputes, in order to facilitate an understanding of the true issues from which conflict takes root. Her knowledge, intuitiveness, and razor-sharp focus on exploring all aspects create a unique opportunity for resolution not seen in traditional mediation.”
