I was born in England and I have travelled extensively since then. What I love best about travelling is the opportunity to meet new people and widen my global perspective. Of course the experience of seeing glaciers in Norway, riding elephants in Africa and eating Belgian chocolate is fabulous also! Because of my passion for people I am excited to meet and work with all types of individuals emphasizing growth and partnership in solving issues.
From my scientist father I gained an analytical approach to life which gives me the ability to make creative connections unseen by others. He taught me to ask why and then find out how. I take his life-lessons of continuous improvement and apply them to people skills and processes. This creative problem solving has also nurtured my artistic soul as I am constantly exploring new craft techniques to see what is possible. Whether through wire, wood, stone or paint my hunger for knowledge is growing through art.
From my mother I gained a love of teaching and my communication skills. This has allowed me to share my knowledge from one on one coaching through classroom training in multiple situations through my career. My proficiency in relationship building comes from my global perspective combined with my strong leadership, partnership and mentoring talents.
