Today it is a joy and privilege for me to encourage people personally and professionally and inspire them to gain, grow, and give.

I grew up the youngest daughter of a single disable mother. Today I proudly hold a Doctorate in Educational Leadership, a Master’s Degree in Counseling and the esteemed title MBTI® Master Practitioner. I am certified to administer and interpret the MBTI®, Strong Interest Inventory® and FIRO®, assessments. My twenty years of higher education experience consisted of career development through teaching and counseling and 7+ years as an academic dean. My research concentrated on negative AND positive and aspects of stress for community college executives and how certain personal qualities contribute to successful careers. I published Women in Bloom to acknowledge a number of bold women who returned to college even when it was difficult and uncomfortable for them to do so.
