“My superpower? I learned to open beer bottles with my wedding ring several years ago and I haven’t used an opener since!”
Where did you earn your degree?
BS (Animal Science), Virginia Tech, 1987.
What’s your proudest career accomplishment?
Candidly, it’s when people call me or drop me a note to say their business–or their world–is better because we worked together. That’s the most rewarding thing about the work that I do. I’ve had clients tell me that they enjoy practicing again because of the work that we did together to improve their hospital and energize their team. It doesn’t get much more rewarding than that.
What gets you out of bed every morning?
For me, it’s just about making a difference. Every day, we get to have an impact and we also get to choose the kind of impact we have. That’s pretty cool. In my personal world, it’s about helping my kids create a future they are going to love.
What are you known for?
About 20 years ago, I ventured off the path of sales and sales management into learning and leadership development. My last corporate role was senior vice president of learning and leadership development at Bank of America, and before that, I spent 15 years with Pfizer Animal Health. These days I’m known for helping practice owners and managers build cultures, teams, and successful businesses they are proud of and excited to get to every morning.
What’s your superpower?
I learned to open beer bottles with my wedding ring several years ago and I haven’t used an opener since. Please ask me for a demonstration during the cocktail portion of the meeting!
