Most of my success has been built on creating mutual trust and respect in my working relationships, along with a principle focus to drive increased value to customers,  the business and the community. Constantly learning while sharing my experience and expertise to empower and influence others has helped me to thrive in the various roles I have held throughout my career. The diversity of my work relationships and engagements provided a platform from which I have extended my skills and abilities in leading and coaching often very diverse teams to successful outcomes.
