About Denise Gaskin

Denise GaskinIt's difficult to perform complicated, detailed work while having a long urgent to-do list. As a leader, you are likely an excellent “doer” who needs more time for strategy. I can help you. I help businesses evaluate culture and build an action plan for desired changes. I have studied this for years, and I have been in the trenches doing it as well. I have done this work in several industries including healthcare, behavioral health, non-profit sector and legal.

Essential questions:

  1. What is the story of your culture? Why do you exist?
  2. If you were a movie, what is your plot, your conflict, your setting, and who are your characters?
  3. Now, if you were the Director, how would you change your movie?

I hold a Ph.D. from the University of Tennessee in Educational Psychology with emphasis on Collaboration, Culture, Communication and Dialogue. I have an M.S. in Counseling Psychology from Indiana University, and a B.S. in Exercise Science and Wellness from Ball State University.

Before starting RavenWork, I worked twelve years as a law firm Chief Operating Officer. Before my legal career, I was Director of Operations at a multi-county behavioral health organization in North Carolina. Early in my career, I developed and implemented wellness programs for a large hospital system and led wellness promotion work for large corporate clients. I am passionate about wellness, psychology, collaboration, facilitation, dialogue, and communication.

I help businesses understand who they are, and help them tell their story. Each business gets to decide how the story unfolds.
