My life experiences—both positive and negative, successes and failures—have made me realize you cannot have the energy, resilience, and sense of purpose to lead a successful life, project, team, or company if you focus on your struggles. As an endurance athlete, that same drive to train and compete has sustained me in rebalancing my life after difficult situations by staying focused on my core strengths and beliefs.
In my professional life, I work to provide and implement successful strategies to bring work and personal life in balance. I help clients focus on knowing their true core, both personally and professionally, to help them define their current situation and discover their highest potential. Bridging the gap between the realities of business and the balance of personal life is critical in today’s world.
Individuals, small family businesses, and large corporations look to me to help them optimize the potential that lies within themselves and their organizations.
