My joy comes from adding value to my clients and seeing them achieve their highest potential in their businesses, careers and lives.  Some of those clients’ accolades can be celebrated publicly as evidenced in my About You page, others are internally motivated and do not wish the public attention.

Being a small business owner, let me share how I’ve brought value to organizations in my local community and developed my leadership, mentorship and professional history.  My intention is to demonstrate my commitment to growth and service, which I believe would serve the vision of all the business owners, executives an professionals  with whom I work.
