Background Information

I have worked for more than 15 years in the fields of education, nonprofit, business and leadership development. I serve as the president of Strategic Leadership International, an organization that provides leadership training to leaders and organizations through consulting, coaching, training and mentoring. I am a speaker and educator providing practical, academic and spiritual perspectives that address issues affecting human, social, business and spiritual development. I have a passion for empowering leaders and organizations to be innovative, creative and proactive industry pacesetters. As a result, I serve in the role of consultant and advisor, providing trainings that challenge, inspire and develop leadership skills, habits, and qualities in the areas of change, strategy, and management.

Why I Teach

To teach in college and university settings is truly an honor. My commitment to education, preparation and service in an environment of purposeful and rigorous inquiry is a high priority for me. I am especially fond of the inquiry aspect of the student experience at Multnomah University because it is through investigation that students can either prove or disprove theories, philosophies and dogmas.
