With 20 years of professional experience, fortunately, I’ve held many positions across a range of industries that have allowed me to cultivate a skill set that makes me adaptable to many opportunities.

Every day I strive to make a positive impact on the world and encourage others to achieve success both in business and in life. My mission is to educate and inspire those within my reach by sharing my personal experiences.
