I am the President of Learning Pursuits Consulting. I partner with professional individuals and organizations to design, develop and deliver transformational learning experiences.

This is my personal and professional blog. I love my family and my work – and believe both are inextricably woven. So what you will find here is a combination of the two. Our personal lives, business relationships and endeavors function best with strong leadership, efficient organization and clear goals. Real-life learning is a constant source of inspiration and teaching for the workplace.

My goal is to provide smart, relevant information and tips that will help you continue to develop as a leader.


I began my career as a successful leader and manager of both traditional and virtual teams in education and business. I had the privilege to launch a statewide, public, charter school. As the principal of 1800 students and 55 teachers across a state, I learned firsthand how to build a dynamic team in both face-to-face and virtual settings.

Later, I worked for four years as a Curriculum Development Manager and Coach at Building Champions, which led me to Learning Pursuits Consulting.

I have been consulting, speaking and coaching under Learning Pursuits Consulting since 2007. In that time, I have had the pleasure of working with teams from CenterPoint Companies, Blue Bunny Ice Cream, Saint Peter’s University Hospital in New Jersey, and so many more.

I am a member of the International Coaching Federation, and hold an ACC Coach Certification. And, in addition to being certified as an EQ Trainer, I am also certified in Worktraits Assessments, DISC Behavioral Profile Analysis, and in Adobe Captivate virtual design.

I hold a BA in Education from Whitworth University in Spokane, WA, and a Masters Degree in Education from Antioch University, Seattle. My Ph.D. in Leadership is from Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA, where I currently teach as an adjunct professor in the Masters of Leadership Program and the Communication Arts Department.
