I was first approached regarding public speaking when I was 8 years old having just completed a talk in church. An older gentleman approached me and informed me that he was the Dean of Communication at the local college. He said that I had the gift of public speaking. He asked me to always remember that one day I would be a public speaker. My young wise soul internalized that moment.

SOMETHING UNIQUE ABOUT ME
I enjoy water skiing, mountain biking, dirt bike racing, fly fishing, and watercolor painting. I also enjoy a quality purchase. I research and buy the best, something that will last. Recognizing that quality is worth pursuing, I have found that I may need to save or work towards my purchase.
ONE OF MY GREATEST FEARS
I’m afraid of heights. I am fearful of hanging Christmas lights, standing near edges, and cliffs. I don’t like to get on the roof. I get nervous on certain hikes when the trail narrows.
THINGS I LIKE TO DO FOR CLIENTS ‘JUST BECAUSE’
I love to connect people. I believe that as we connect others, it leads to opportunity. When we know the dreams, ambitions, talents, and aspirations of our employees, friends, or associates, we can drive success their direction. We can utilize their abilities in new and creative ways. As the individual grows so does the relationship. I’ve enjoyed finding many jobs for people or connecting them to the right client. I’ve done it all my life, and it’s what has made me successful. It’s just the way I live.
WHAT IS FUN ABOUT MY BUSINESS
I’m never at work. I promote positivity and create solutions for others. It brings me joy. I’m into making things happen. I strongly advocate that leaders draw upon the excellence of those around them to create a cause.
