Ryann has built a career and a company around an unwavering belief in human potential.
With a dedication to creating environments where people can do their best work and helping leaders rise to the challenges of leadership, she has guided organizations though cultural transformations and equipped them to navigate an increasingly complex world. In the process she has built a culture and a team at The Frontier Project that lives and breathes the ideas and practices she espouses to clients.
A strong proponent of work/life balance, on a given day Ryann might be leading project kick offs or group meditations at our studio; collaborating with our facilitators on a curriculum or challenging other businesses to a friendly sustainability competition. She is a passionate advocate for human rights issues, mentors other CEOs, and volunteers in the community—and encouraging her employees to do the same via The Frontier Project’s unlimited vacation policy and service days.
Ryann studied Philosophy and Psychology at the University of Illinois where she also earned her Master’s Degree in Human Resources. She received her M.B.A. from the University of Richmond. Her career has spanned the corporate world, nonprofits, and startups, giving her broad perspective and deep insight into the challenges faced by today’s organizations.
