As a developmental psychologist, Beril brings a deep interest in people’s stories and the ways we connect to others and the world around us. She is passionate about helping leaders make their daily experiences more productive, authentic, and meaningful.
In her work at Bell Leadership, Beril draws from a range of experiences as a facilitator, teacher, researcher, mentor, and coach in both private and university settings in the US and abroad. Students, young professionals, families, and corporate leaders have benefited from her energetic positivity, keen insight, and practical strategies.
