Why Stone Soup Ripple?
Community-building is in Christine's DNA.
Says Christine, "Whether we realize it or not, our ability to connect with others impacts every aspect of our lives, individually and collectively. The practice, the art and the joy of connection is easily taken for granted and often completely overlooked."
As founder of Stone Soup Ripple, Christine Leuthold brings her heart as well as a career in the corporate, non-profit and private sectors to focus on the importance of authentic, meaningful, purposeful human connection.
A lover of screened content (andTV Guide) when she was in her early teens, Christine tapped in to its allure at an early age. She has had a lifelong passion for immersing herself in diverse perspectives, cultures and mindsets.
This fascination led to a heightened awareness of the potential ripple effects that arise from collective experiences. She intuitively recognizes these ripples and knows how add momentum. She does this in her in-person and on-online Stone Soup Ripple gatherings as well with corporate and private clients.
