Back Story

Growing up, I had an undeniable fascination with people and an unwavering desire to understand how to uplift and empower them. It was a time before the internet became a hub of readily available information, with no YouTube tutorials or Facebook groups to guide me. Instead, I embarked on a journey to connect with people the old-fashioned way.


As life sped forward, I found myself holding a master's degree after graduating college, ready to explore the professional world. My first stop was in the municipality domain, a place that laid the foundation for many core understandings and became pivotal in shaping my approach to engaging with people on a broader scale. From there, I charted my own course into the realm of higher education, seizing opportunities that came my way.


Through years of navigating the intricate landscape of higher education, I weathered various experiences – some favorable, others less so – until I eventually found myself in my current role. It's here, after all these years, that I'm doing what truly ignites my passion.


My newfound mission revolves around fostering positive work experiences and nurturing thriving cultures within organizations. Over the years, I've amassed a wealth of knowledge, learning from both my successes and my setbacks, and I'm eager to share these insights with others.


If you're curious about my journey or interested in learning more about how I can help you navigate the intricacies of professional life, don't hesitate to reach out. Together, we can uncover the keys to promoting positivity and growth in your workplace and beyond.
