 A Lifetime of Service

Faith, Family, Country...I have been blessed and honored to be called to serve in so many different ways over the past 35 years.  Over that time, I have learned from some of the greatest leaders in the World.  I have been even more influenced by some of the most heroic and courageous everyday people who make our Country and its institutions hum along almost effortlessly.

It's this experience that has shaped my integrity and passion to champion the growth and development of others.  Giving grand speeches and holding large events are effective ways to pass on knowledge and skills to the masses, but it's a one-on-one connection, doing work at a personal level, where the power of self-discovery unlocks creativity, innovation, and sparks action.
