Listen to my podcast

I am a lifetime learner passionate about helping people reach their God given potential. By day, I work as a learning professional. I was a Certified Professional in Learning and Performance (CPLP) from 2010-2021. My degree was in Adult Education. By night, I dream about how we can learn more about human behavior to improve instructional techniques to better equip, engage and empower learners. I want to see change, not just talk about change.

The Marcus Buckingham Standout assessment reveals I'm an Equalizer/Connector. (Here’s how it describes me.)

Equalizer: A level-headed person whose power comes from keeping the world in balance, ethically and practically.

Connector: I am a catalyst. My power lies in my craving to put two things together to make something bigger than it is now.
