I was raised in Denver, Colorado, with my parents and 2 older sisters, who worked hard to ensure I never lost my understanding of the seniority system. This is where my early training with relationship-building really began. I still hear my father’s voice daily in his words of wisdom, his teaching that “anything worth doing is worth being done right,” and his sense of humor that has motivated me through challenging times in both my personal and professional career. I was taught to work hard and there would be fruits to my labors.
I feel I had a great childhood; a solid, fun college experience; a successful career in the corporate world; and success as an independent management consultant, and now also, an author.
