PERSONAL/PROFESSIONAL SUMMARY:  My working life’s devotion is to help to build a culture that inspires employee engagement and customer loyalty. I aspire to work for – and play a key role in – a ‘visionary’ organization that embraces collaboration, teamwork, accountability, genuine compassion for both customers and employees, joy! and work ‘that matters.’ I am a successful business executive (and adjunct professor!) with over 30 years of successful experience at ‘organizational problem solving’, ‘leadership that inspires’, and ‘fearless communication’. I have the ability to assess and – in collaboration with others - develop practical solutions for organizational issues large and small. I believe my ‘gifts’ are:

Seasoned Judgment                            Driving Execution                              Empowering Others

Fostering Open Dialogue                   Inspiring Trust                                    Adaptability

Building Relationships                       Influencing and Negotiating               Mature Confidence
