Over the years, I learned the ins and outs of how to move from entry level positions to the top levels of Management; to ultimately achieve a Vice Presidents position in a billion dollar publicly traded organization. While climbing the corporate ladder, I learned how to interact at all levels of an organization in order to achieve personal success; while supporting my employer’s growth objectives.

One of the key elements of my career that I enjoyed the most was helping other people recognize their gifts and talents; to guide them into developing a plan to best leverage them while supporting the objectives of the organization.

I now want to share what I learned over the years to help you create a road map to support your personal and career goals with integrity and honesty. Profits are great but integrity and honesty are KEYs to a successful long-term career.
