Summit Facilitators 





Both Anna Jackson and Fisher Qua began practicing with Liberating Structures (LS) in health & care settings about 12 years ago. Together, they lead LS learning experiences & workshops, consult with a large variety of groups & organizations, and support the spread of different facilitative practices through their consulting practice, Lucky Hunch.

Anna brings practical and artistic sensibilities to her work with Liberating Structures and other participatory approaches. Her background in the mental health recovery movement, peer-based learning & support networks, and facilitating in complex contexts gives Anna a depth and breadth of experience that is reassuring for groups taking on difficult, entangled, and often risky challenges. She has a MSSW from the University of Texas at Austin.

Fisher has a background in history, modern dance, learning and development, higher education management, and health improvement, particularly related to informal communities of care. Fisher brings eclectic skills to his consulting work and enjoys the novelty of working across domains, communities, and networks. He has a MEd in College Sports Management from the University of Washington.
