My passion is PEOPLE - relationship building, being a connector and helping others succeed. I love building new relationships and nurturing existing ones. Network In Action is my dream opportunity to be a Professional Connector and focus on helping others full-time through building strong relationships.
My professional experience brings 30 years in diverse client-facing business experience, with industries ranging from hospitality, film and TV production, publishing, technology, healthcare and call centers. My cross-functional versatility has brought me success in operations, accounting, a national leader in sales, and building world-class client success teams and allowed me to develop into an industry agnostic, operationally focused, multi-functional business expert with a passion for clients.
I grew up all over the US as the daughter of a career Marine Corp fighter pilot. Born in Yuma, AZ, I moved a lot but ended up graduating high school in Southern California, then on to college in Bozeman, MT and I've lived in Nashville since 1993. I've been married to my best friend, Ricky, since 1995, and we have two beautiful daughters, Cassie and Autumn, and a grandson, Benjamin.
Personal hobbies include hiking, gardening, music and spending time with my family and friends.
Describe your perfect referral
My perfect referral is a business owner or decision maker who is committed to building relationships, understands the value of word-of-mouth referrals and desires to build a trustworthy network with other professionals to help each other grow their businesses.
Qualifying Questions: What are three questions we can ask clients to help pave the way for a referral? List them here.
1) Are you frustrated with the transactional nature of networking groups you have attended?
2) Are you too busy to network but understand the value of word-of-mouth referrals?
3) Would you benefit by having the opportunity to build stronger relationships with other business owners committed to helping each other grow?
