Helping, inspiring, engaging and motivating others to reach their greatest desire and potential fills my bucket and aligns with my life's mission. I don't see a finish line nor do I see this every changing. I want to continue growing, both personally and professionally. Surrounding myself with others (e.g., networking) who are on the same bus keeps me moving forward and seeking the next summit.
I am a former professor turned entrepreneur. My former career laid the foundation for having a rewarding business in coaching and speaking. I am originally from the Chicago area where my family still resides. I've lived in Wyoming, Texas, Michigan, Virginia and now Colorado. I love adventure and love helping others go on an adventure.
Travel and adventure. I am a former wilderness instructor, rafting guide, backpacking, boating and climbing instructor. I've spent 40+ years climbing all sorts of mountains (big, small, snowy, rocky, technical, walk ups, domestic and international) and continue to find the direct transfer to helping others put one foot in front of the other.
