Experience and Education:
President & CEO
I have worked here 25 years and now I am the oldest member of the organization. And, I look it. I am a communications specialist with dozens of projects that I have loved working on. Contributing to the MAGIC® brand has been some of my most enjoyable work.
Co-author of How to Talk to Customers: Create a Great Impression Every Time with MAGIC.
My BA is in Communication Arts from Arizona State, and my MA is in Counseling Psychology from Lewis and Clark. I am also on the faculty at Fairfield University in the Communications Department.
My past work with leadership teams includes employee engagement and customer service initiatives with Indianapolis Power and Light, Kellogg, Robert Bosch, Prudential, Siemens, Penguin Computing and JPMorgan Chase. I am hopeful my future path will be as rewarding. I truly enjoy bringing out the spirit in work.
I've been told by kids big and small that I am a good coach. I enjoy relating to people and building long term relationships. I am still in touch with several 25-year friends. Also, the support team here at Communcio is virtue-rich and I am fortunate to have them so close at hand. The Internal Services Group is making me look good all the time. My blessings are plentiful and include a great family and entertaining cat, Rambo.
Although chips, salsa and red wine may be vices, I consider them health foods and medicinal. Moderation in all things - even moderation.
I enjoy meeting new prospects and working leaders of service cultures; collaborating with coworkers and innovators. I enjoyed being a moderator for the White House Conference on Small Business for the state of Connecticut. Motivational, inspirational, and measurable projects attract me. I enjoy this work.
