Professional Experience

My employment experiences since 1990 have been fundamentally entrepreneurial and administrative in nature. I have become adept at taking on undeveloped and underdeveloped (even chaotic) programs, and restructuring them so as to create sustainable programs that are formative of others. I have accomplished this through consistent, focused, and sustained conversations with stakeholders in the programs, affirming their good desires to succeed and providing necessary support. In short, I have an ardent desire to enter into any situation that is dysfunctional and work with others to improve it.

Areas of Expertise

As one responsible for the formation of others, whether adolescents or adults, I have grown to appreciate how important it is not only to listen to others, but to help them to listen to themselves, that is, to listen to their frustrations and problems, but also to their own good
desires, talents and gifts. In so doing an individual is progressively freed to make the good choices that they need in order to face their difficulties and thus to grow and succeed. This process is fundamental to the growth of any organization as well, for it is the individuals in an organization who either drive or impede its growth.
