I'm a cage rattler. Change agent. Thought shifter. Sculptor of human potential.
With degrees and careers in human resource management, systems theory counseling, and educational leadership, I have the experience, insight, techniques, and, most importantly, the courage, to take you from crisis mode (and drama) to responding with intention and calm.
I’ll give you the tools and create the perception shift you need to redefine problems and find the power within you to address problems, regardless of what someone else is doing.
I want more for you.
I want you to stop living smaller than you are capable of.
I want to liberate you (and your organization) to live in your fullest potential.
Where does this passion come from? A brutal appreciation of time. The finite amount that we have of it. Day after day, I see the squandering of time. Not just through our smart phones. I mean the wasting of our potential. Of our happiness. Of our opportunities to leave this world better for having had us. Of the legacy we leave on this planet. Our unique footprint.
What does this have to do with my story? I’ve lost friends to accidents and disease. My father died at 45, my mother and step-father at 69. Through medical mysteries, mishaps, and bad choices on my part, I’ve faced death several times in my relatively short life. I've seen people take themselves way too seriously....and squander their success and peace of mind as a result.
What did I learn? The only way to value our finite time is to live life large. In your career and in your personal life. To refuse to settle for a life less than abundance. For me, it’s not about the money you earn, it’s about the effect you make on others and the world. We are all going to die: There’s no way out alive.
What you do with the time you have here is what matters.
Take risks. Live authentically. Be real. Find yourself.
Share your gifts. Be vulnerable. Show compassion. Face challenges. Create peace. Be inspired. Do good work.
You know where to find me...
