I am excited about the power that women have to attain and hold leadership positions. This can be hard as I learned during my career (which was and still is male dominated). I was blessed to have some male mentors who helped me navigate into significant leadership positions but in the process realized how few women were there to help as well. So, I chose to gain the training and skills of a leadership coach so that I can help women aspiring to become leaders and to work with women already in leadership positions. I accept a limited number of one-on-one clients who would like coaching on their leadership issues, opportunities, challenges, and training. I also offer Leadership training programs based on the John Maxwell Leadership books.
I completed a career as a Military Health Care Administrator/Executive and retired as a Colonel in the US Air Force prior to becoming a certified leadership coach through the Georgetown University program.
My outlook on women and change in the world is this. I have long believed that the only way to a create a shift in this world filled with violence is for women to come together and decide that no more of their children should die as a result of violence, whether in our neighborhoods, states, nations, or in war. Once this decision is made the next step is to be willing to step forward and help to lead the change. Connecting to nature. Connecting to others. To always be learning something new Being able to see what the future could be but knowing it is not right now Leadership, personal growth, strategic planning, organizational improvement, health care management, public health
My Vision for the Future
A world in which violence is unacceptable and the gifts of each person is valued and integrated within both the local and global community creating a whole greater than anyone of us can imagine.
