What’s the best part of your job?

Coaching and developing leaders, teams and organizations to achieve their highest potential and surpass their goals is what I cherish most about our work. I love seeing highly talented individuals come together as high-performing, cohesive teams.

What inspires your leadership approach?

Leadership is influence. For me, that’s modeling an authentic desire and intentional commitment to lead others to a shared vision and goals. All of us are in the people business first. My mentor, John C. Maxwell, reminds us that “we must win a heart before we ask for a hand.”

What do you cherish most about being a part of the industry? 

The old adage “never a dull day.” The rapidly changing climate requires us to see that there is “opportunity” within every problem. I cherish the opportunity to interact with the passionate people across this industry and draw energy from their tenacity to move forward in even the most challenging of times—nourishing and serving others.
