Every story matters in this world, yours, and mine. It took some time to own my story, the failures and triumphs. Sometimes it’s easier to share only the triumphs. I get it. When we share our story, we find our purpose. After years of searching, I found mine and hope you find yours, too. Currently, I am a management professor (official title “lecturer”) at Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I study organizational leadership, specifically in the area of human resource development. My areas of research include purpose in life, mindset, and fear. I also coach, consult, and speak.
Leadership begins with your inner self. Because, what is inside will come out. It’s a guarantee. Leaders who are well on the inside can lead people well. Our world needs you to be well and lead well. Will you join me?

My Story .
***Please do note, a lot of ups and downs happened throughout the pictures below, but it is a good summary of my journey.***
From a young age I discovered my entrepreneurial mindset. During undergrad, I worked in various business roles full-time (hence why there are so many years of experience). Over the years I have worked in for-profit, non-profit, governmental, and startup organizations. My varied experiences provides you with a unique perspective in solving any organizational challenge.
Industries include: aerospace and defense manufacturing, recruiting, oil and gas, large and small non-profits, faith-based, and technology.
I’ve consulted a dozen startups, started four companies myself, and serve as a mentor and coach to entrepreneurs.
Strategic, responsibility, connectedness, activator, and positivity.
Principles of Management, Intro to Business, Business Communications, Internship, and Digital Marketing (not all in the same semester).
I have a unique range of skills from accounting to strategy to digital marketing and everything in-between. My array of experience and adaptable mindset allows me the opportunity to solve the most complex of challenges.
I use the Habit Finder coaching program to guide individuals who are new to leadership or those who want to grow their leadership capabilities.
Leadership, mindset, purpose in life, or tailored to your needs.
