Grace is a former staff person at the Interfaith Council for Peace and Justice in Ann Arbor.  She is active at St. Francis Catholic Church, served on the Board of Directors for Religious Action for Affordable Housing, and has directed the Garden Project of St. Francis, which grows organic produce for area needy. She has also given workshops, lectured, and participated in teach-ins concerning all facets of social justice for the past 20 years.

Currently, Grace is a principal in an Organizational Development (OD) firm, Insight Unlimited.  She first came to love consensus and working with groups as a young adult peace organizer in the nineteen-eighties.  In the intervening years, she has introduced and trained folks in consensus process and participative planning in forming communities, social justice groups, grassroots organizations, non-profits, universities, and small businesses.  As an OD professional, consensus and participatory organizing are her central paradigms.

Affordable Life Coaching is Grace’s synthesis of her OD work, and her joy in supporting people working for positive change. Realizing that the very same principles that focus organizations on their values, and bring them to their fullest potential can be scaled to the needs of individuals and their goals; she has developed an approach to coaching that many have found helpful.

Grace is married to Paul Potts, a software engineer, and they have four children children, ages 0 to 14.  They live in a very baby-proofed home in Ann Arbor.
