I strive to empower students to discover a self starter spirit and develop their own unique skill set that enables a future of achieved dreams. I have twenty years of professional experience in business and operations management and have a strong background in team building and cultivating a business culture of inspiration. I am passionate about community development, peer mentorship, and mission outreach. I have been married to my middle school sweetheart, Chris for thirty years and enjoy painting, traveling, gardening, and cooking with my three daughters, son in laws and granddaughter. I look forward to meeting every new class of students with a welcoming heart.
