where it all began
After high school, I served our nation in the US Navy for 21 years. During that time, I met people from around the world and was trusted by parents and families to lead their sons and daughters.
I held multiple senior leadership positions, to include participating in numerous operations, including, Afghanistan for Operation ENDURING FREEDOM until retiring in 2017. I've led, developed, mentored, and coached thousands and now, I'm here to do the same for you.
Post retirement, I spent 17 months traveling the world experiencing how other cultures approached learning, specifically, how they viewed adult learning.

a little more about me
Throughout my career, I’ve focused on learning and leadership development. I’ve been charged with improving organizational development, and did so by leading strategic development teams through taking “learning to task” initiatives. By embracing the complexities of the workforce, and studying employee experiences, I am confident that valuing individual temperaments, organizational sub-cultures, and workplace expectancies create both barriers and successes for change. As a result, to meet the needs of an increasingly fluid workplace, I leveraged my education and professional experiences to drive and enhance organizational capabilities of internal units and external partners alike.
In short, my personal vision is “be better today than I was yesterday”, therefore, I approach coaching as an experience. In doing so, I’ve had success leading cross-cultural teams, leveraging adult learning and application, developing effective workshops, and navigating through functional workplace alignments. I have been successful as a collaborator up and down the leadership chain; therefore, I am confident that I will be great fit for you and your team.
