As the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Pivotal Connections, LLC, I use and share my diverse lifelong experiences – as a business leader, military veteran, military spouse, and parent – to prepare, inspire, value, optimize, and transform (or PIVOT) current and aspiring leaders.
As a Maxwell Leadership Certified Team Member (MLCT), I also use an array of learning systems and tools developed by world-renowned leadership expert, John C. Maxwell. These resources, coupled with my lifelong experiences, equip me to provide exceptional needs-based and life-changing experiences for adults, youth, parents, and families who are committed to personal and professional growth.
Aligned with my passion for serving the community, I practice servant leadership holistically by volunteering my time and other resources to multiple nonprofit agencies, private organizations, and ministries that provide food, medicine, education, and inspiration to others.
Finally, I am committed to lifelong learning. In addition to attaining multiple MLCT certifications, I hold a Master of Business Administration degree from Georgia College & State University in Milledgeville, GA and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration from Metropolitan State University in St. Paul, MN.
