My teaching method is collaborative, creative, and passionate. I appeal to individual coaching needs through mentorship and positive reinforcement. My expectations of any student are transparent integrity and a willingness to learn new materials. I help people break self limiting beliefs that close doors to opportunity rather than open them. I am always focused on building others up and address any constructive feedback with objectivity and a solid improvement plan.
I have enjoyed a career in Procurement/Supply Chain, Process Engineering, Quality Management, Corporate Culture, and Transformational Coaching for 24 years. I earned my bachelor's in Political Science & General Business Management from Oakland University in 2006 and remain an alumni Leadership Mentor. I teach people how to refine their leadership style to adapt to the team dynamic, empower their teams, and drive toward measurable results. In addition to my fields of expertise, I specialize in complex problem solving, cross functional team building, and corporate culture reform. As someone who has traversed the rocky terrain of changing industries, I coach career changers to rewrite the narrative of their own story in order to pursue their dream career.
