Here’s a bit about us:
I am a CPA, licensed in the state of Washington, and I have more than 30 years of experience in leadership positions at businesses of many sizes. I most recently worked as a Controller for Electric Mirror, LLC. Before that, I worked for RCO Legal, CompuCom Systems Inc, and Contour Aerospace, a division of Vought Aircraft. I have a bachelor’s degree (Summa Cum Laude) in business administration and accounting from the University of Missouri-Saint Louis.
My career has spanned a wide range of businesses and I’ve been able to see, first hand, how organizational behavior is the key to business success. I look forward to working with business owners, CEOs and managers to help them understand how their role, their leadership style and their actions set the tone for the entire business. Helping leaders to be self-aware and to build strong teams is vital to helping them improve their businesses and, with the support of great teams, find balance in their own lives.
Michael and I are married with two daughters, Mary and Michelle.
I am an aerospace engineer with more than 40 years of experience on military and commercial aircraft in flight test organizations. After a career that spanned many different companies and organizational structures, I have recently retired from The Boeing Company. I am a Fellow and past president of The Society of Flight Test Engineers and hold a bachelor’s degree in aerospace engineering from the University of Oklahoma.
During my career as I advanced up the “ladder to success” I put soft skills to work, training, empowering, and managing teams or leading multi-million-dollar test programs. Everywhere I went and at every company or government organization it was the same, people make the difference between success and failure. I hope to leverage my experience combined with The Growth Coach® process to enable the next generation of businesses and business people.
