I was a Navy brat, so I travelled to several countries and most of the United States before I finished high school.

Every industry that is now a large-scale, top-notch business once started as a small idea in the minds of entrepreneurs. What was that idea or motivation that made you start your business /initiative? What motivated you within to say YES, go for it!”

I’ve worked with some terrific leaders and I’ve learned both formally and informally what habits & thought processes make a good leader. I’ve met many leaders who started out as subject matter experts and got promoted. I want to help teach them modern leadership skills and be their trusted guide to success. When my clients are happy, I’m happy!

Better leadership, create more psychological safety for innovation and teamwork, and support passionate leaders with their mission.
