Davia’s Bio

Davia and the Japanese maple

Davia Rivka has been personally and professionally exploring the intersection of personal growth and social change for more than forty years. Her idea of a good time is collaborating on creative solutions to seemingly insurmountable challenges—like poverty and climate change. She’s weird like that.

A certified life coach with a master’s degree in clinical psychology, Davia has worked with thousands of people committed to making a difference in the world. For two decades she worked to end hunger and poverty. And for the last decade she’s been working to turn the tide on climate change.

Her first book, Up to Something Big: Stories That Inspire Change, was published in 2012.

You can find Davia on the road or with her face in her computer, crafting words to inspire people to take action.
