Marketing & PR Consultant & Producer

It takes a career lifetime to hone one's skills in a variety of disciplines. The risk is being a jack-of-all-trades and master of none. In the pre-digital days of marketing, the options for promoting a business were fewer and less complex. With the advent of the internet and social media, specialties in the communications field became stand-alone professions. Having built and managed a number of internal and client marketing teams from the ground up, I've had the advantage of being both a marketing generalist and specialist in strategic and tactical roles ranging from consulting and planning to writing, design, media relations, and web development and optimization. 

Areas of Expertise & Influence

Career, Relationship, Life & Spiritual Coach

Having served in leadership roles from the start of my career in 1988, coaching staff was an essential part of managing and developing a team. It's been my lifelong study and practice to be of encouragement and guidance to others in various aspects of work and life. It was a natural adjunct for me to combine my education and background in behavioral psychology, marketing, and business to become a coach. To this day, I coach and am coached. I counsel and am counseled. Clients and peers think of me as equally adept in marketing and coaching. Succeeding in both these practices requires a number of the same core technical and soft skills.

Areas of Expertise & Influence

Life & Business Philosophy

I focus on living a Fruit of the Spirit life. That’s a biblical reference, but universal message, no matter where you are or what you do or don't believe. The nine fruits are: Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-Control. I believe in servant, heart-centered leadership and putting others first. I believe we're ultimately all just fallen people trying to navigate a fallen world. By fallen people, I don't mean evil, though evil acts indeed exist. I simply mean we're all imperfect, and that we're all continuously healing and growing. I believe that, apart from God, I can do nothing. 

Values by Which I Live & Work

  1. Do everything with great love.
  2. Have compassion and empathy. Forgive.
  3. Be grateful, genuine, and generous.
  4. Be honest and trustworthy. Have integrity.
  5. Be present, and show you care. 
  6. Listen, ask questions, and follow up. 
  7. Reach out, respond, and communicate openly.
  8. Own your issues. Depersonalize others' behavior.
  9. Ask or say: How are you? I love you. I'm sorry.
  10. Laugh, have fun, and be joyful always.
