Name change: "IMI Certified" for highly-experienced professionals remains the same; "IMI Accredited" for those who have completed initial training only becomes "IMI Qualified". Blog post here.

Mediation Profile

After having studied mediation and conflict resolution extensively over the past five years, I am finally diving into the world of practice by undertaking a mediator certification practicum here in Washington State, USA. I am also fortunate to be employed by Northwest Mediation Center as a Program Producer and, soon, a volunteer mediator (once I complete the certification process). I have followed the IMI/YMI work and community for some time online, and am excited to be taking the next steps towards becoming an active member. 

I am currently a Program Producer at Northwest Mediation Center (NMC), helping a small but dedicated non-profit dispute resolution organization with the important tasks of communication, outreach and event planning. I am also currently undertaking the certified mediator practicum program through NMC so that I can join the list of volunteer mediators that work for this and other sliding-scale fee non-profit DRCs. I undertook my master's studies in Peace Studies and Conflict Resolution at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia, as a Rotary Peace Fellow. 

I have undertaken two different 40-hour Basic Mediation Training courses in addition to the academic component of my graduate studies. I am also now 60 hours into the 120 required hours to become a certified mediator through the Washington Mediation Association.
