I grew up in Los Angeles, and was raised in a working/middle class family. Both of my parents always worked, and taught me the value of hard work, persistence, and leadership.
I worked in the private sector for 16 years, then went back to school at 33 and graduate from Northern Arizona University with a Bachelors in Sociology, and from Oregon State University with a Masters in Human Development and Family Studies.
I have both intellectual knowledge and practical experience in leading and coaching individuals and teams, both personally and professionally, especially in higher education. I am now the Director of the Extended Learning Department at Linn-Benton Community College in Albany, OR.
In addition to leading and coaching individuals and teams, I also write. I love writing, and have published articles on leadership development, organizational culture, creating teams, and on personal development. I also love to write poetry, and have published several pieces in the last year. Please check out my blog for posts, articles, and poetry.
If you are interested in leadership development, personal development, or poetry, feel free to reach out to my anytime.
Develop, Inspire, and Transform.
