Having over 18 years of experience in high-dollar, high-profile Executive Leadership, I have built and managed successful businesses with the reputation of repeatedly generating millions of dollars in revenue and consistent growth. My unique advantage is my wide range of experience, from Business Development, Finance, Operations and Risk Management, along with my ability to effectively recruit, retain and manage all levels of talent from office clerks to a top executive team.

My success is also tied closely with my ability to create compelling methods of cost savings and revenue development through strategic planning. My initiatives have been wildly successful, turning short and long term strategies into action steps that work. My tendency to take the performance of the company personally, as if I owned it myself, has earned my reputation as an unmatched asset to my employers.
