Working together, I will move you and/or your team or organization in the desired direction to reach your goals.

My Father gave me one of my greatest gifts in life through his demonstration of the belief that every person has value, untapped potential.  He made everyone feel they were important to him and taught me to do the same.  While it was at times annoying while I was growing up, it created a foundation that allowed me to excel in executive leadership positions in fortune 100 and mid-sized companies throughout my career.  This philosophy was the catalyst that led to my passion for personal development, training and coaching and a desire to contribute to the well being of others.  Over the years I have led workshops and coached groups and individuals across a broad spectrum of society, corporate executives, sales organizations, churches, underserved populations (recovering addicts, first time offenders, etc.), government organizations, youth in transition and many others.

I began exploring and applying the wisdom of some of the legends in the personal development industry early in my career.  I read and/or attended classes from authors such as Earl Nightingale, Tom Hopkins, Dennis Waitley, Napoleon Hill, Jim Rohm, Les Brown, Maxwell Maltz, W. Clement Stone, Paul Meyer and of course John Maxwell.  As a result, principles of Leadership and personal growth became the pillars from which I successfully led organizations, increased employee productivity, and engagement while empowering creativity and growth.  Realizing my purpose to “impact the capacity of individuals”, and thus that of organizations, I am very excited to be a Founding Partner on the John Maxwell Team, and look forward to working with organizations committed to employee development, leadership team improvement, and cultural change.
