Inspired by the field of Sports Medicine as a teenager, I found a unique path in the field which suits my unique capabilities. My science-based education in exercise physiology help me to develop my scientific and creative capabilities. The nature of the scientific process allowed me to develop an understanding of systems.
I have enjoyed a spectacular career path with wonderful opportunities. I find myself living in one of the most beautiful places I have ever been, Coeur d'Alene, ID. My primary employer, Gonzaga University, affords me many of the benefits and opportunities I have sought. Yet, my position allows me the time and energy to pursue entrepreneurial interests.
My objective is to seek out opportunities to help organizations and individuals achieve their goals and objectives.
