My work & play
I've enjoyed a fairly diverse career, holding leadership positions in a variety of companies and industries.
For much of my career, I led a multi-million dollar business for a global technology leader serving Fortune 500 companies in the US and UK. For more than a decade, the industry saw unparalleled advancement in technology and a radically changing workforce culture. I learned to balance rapidly changing customer solutions with the continual recruitment, training, and retention of skilled personnel, while meeting or exceeding tough revenue and profitability targets.
For many years I also served full-time on the staff of my evangelical church, one of three leaders responsible for strategic planning and leadership of 700 adult members, 11 staff and more than 40 volunteer leaders.
I'm an avid reader and life-long learner. I love to travel and play with landscape photography. In addition to living in Europe for several years, I've traveled to more than 20 countries, including a wonderful trip to Antartica. My best friend John and I have been married 37 years.
