I was led to John Maxwell’s team because of my strong desire to help people become more than who they are. I have spent the majority of my adult life working in the field of education (25 years). I began as special education teacher helping children and young adults learn in spite of aggressive behaviors. I then became a middle school math and science teacher. After leaving the classroom, I began an aggressive climb through the leadership ranks as director of curriculum and instruction, director of an alternative school, and for the last 12 years, managing director for two large charter schools. I also started and managed two non-profit companies, both sustaining handicapped employees. As a certified Stephens Minister I have the opportunity to work with individuals who are in spiritual need. A native of Buffalo NY, I attended college in West Virginia where I had the opportunity to travel and study abroad. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Education. I moved to North Carolina, where I met my wife, and received a M.Ed. in Administration in Curriculum Instruction. I am happily married, and together my wife and I are blessed with three wonderful children.
Our business, LEAF Advising, focuses on Leadership, Education, Administration and Faith. John Maxwell has taught us proven leadership methods that encompasses these four principles and so much more. My journey and my story of success and failure is not the same as yours. Living each day intentionality has taught me there is no limit to what you can do! We work with individuals who are searching for a new approach to transforming their organization or themselves.CONTACT ME FOR MORE INFORMATION
