You can find out the formal version – what I’ve done and where I’ve done it on LinkedIn, but I’m not about the formal here. Here we are cool and little more laid back. So here are some pieces of information that only those close…or somewhat close to me know.
Passions: Besides helping other people discover their talents and skills…I’m passionate about James Bond, baking, my dogs Jack and Ollie, NFL – specifically the 49’ers, and NASCAR. Keep the left-turn jokes to yourself. I can’t help it – love the cars, love that it’s not all fancy like the “Grand Prix”. I’m a down home kinda gal, so stock car racing it is.
What drives me: You. (I guess this is where I should say my family…okay, them too). My business cards say, “The Learning Professionals Coach”. My goal is to help you enhance your skills. So here we are. I have Ninja Trainer Skills let’s put them to good use to help you increase your skills and value to the market place.
How can I help you? There’s the question of the day. I can only help you, help you. Meta right? Seriously. I have a lot (A LOT) of years of experience in helping people to be the best they can be, both on the job and in their personal lives. You have value. My goal is to help that value shine!
