Why did I choose this profession?
I have a card hanging on my bulletin board that's been with me for a long, long time. It shows an old, much-used scrub brush. Below the picture, it reads, "You may see a brush. But in 1968 Joe Saltzer, a cleaner working for NASA, saw it differently. When asked by a visitor what his job was, Joe replied, 'I'm helping to put a man on the moon.'" I believe that organizations and leaders that harness the potential for employees to commit to something bigger than themselves will be the organizations that not only last but become great. I'm driven to support and enable that potential for individuals, leaders, and organizations.

What is my passion?
What is my biggest fear?
Fear. No kidding – fear is such a debilitating place to be.
I live by this rule.
Offer your hand. Be kind. Clear paths. Laugh. Dance. Sing.
