Is a John Maxwell Certified Coach, Teacher and Speaker, I can offer you keynote speaking, coaching, workshops, and seminars, aiding your personal and professional growth through study and practical application of John’s proven leadership methods. Working together, I will help move you and/or your team or organization in the desired direction to reach your goals.
My passion is adding value to people. Having the privilege of standing with others while helping them reach their goals and aspirations is what has led me to the John Maxwell Team. I teach and live life according to my favorite quote, “People don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care”. Working in my family business for over 23 years I learned invaluable information on customer service and relationships. I served on the board of Grand Finale Cowboy ministries for 16 yrs. and am currently on the board of Cultivate Hope International. I have been married for almost 33 years and have two grown children and two grandchildren. I strongly believe that what we accomplish and get out of life is according to our belief system, and is ultimately our responsibility. Since 1999 I have applied the John Maxwell values and philosophies to my life. My devotion to living an Intentional Life has created significance, growth and satisfaction. By creating a plan and following that plan I have increased my development exponentially and I am positive that these same values and philosophies will create a life of passion and fulfillment for you.
