Profile

Prior to starting a consultancy group, I held the title of vice president in the private sector of executive development, state licensing board, trade industry lobbying, and commodity marketing boards. My formal studies include the Doctor of Management in Organizational Leadership and Master of Arts in Organizational Management from the University of Phoenix, as well as, the Master of Science in Agribusiness/Marketing and Bachelor of Arts in Education from Arizona State University.

The fun side of me:

What many do not realize about me is my tenacity and resiliency. I have bicycled across the United States (yes, 5,000 miles as the bird flies) with nearly three months, 60 mile days, and lack of make-up (can you image for a woman?). I have hiked the John Muir trail in the Sierra Nevada Mountains by slicing the 300-mile hike into one week journeys over five years. I hiked the Grand Canyon nearly a dozen times. I especially the hiking the area called the Narrows. Well, you get the point. I love adventures.
