My first venture out of college was a sales career for major corporations. A focus on planning, execution, learning, and accountability resulted in exceptional benefits for my clients. Developing skills for communication competence enabled me to become an enthusiastic and resourceful leader dedicated to team excellence.
I eventually transitioned into Professional Athletic Training. The Practice specialized in postural movement, core performance, and injury rehabilitation through program design using weights, kettlebells, and cardiovascular implementation.
For the past 15 years, I also support clients through a Life Transformation Process, which emphasizes influential awareness through clarity of a person's identity and beliefs.
This strategy establishes a consistent, disciplined approach to personal and professional development.
The outcome for those I serve is the fulfillment of their leadership potential for exceptional significance in life.
I presently speak to organizations about the lessons learned from Health & Leadership Coaching and my restoration from enduring open-heart, kidney, and septic shock surgeries. I'm devoted to supporting you to master life's challenges with courage and confidence.
