A Message from
For more than twenty-five years, I have helped CEOs and c-suite executives from startups to multi-billion dollar organizations unlock their maximum potential and performance to thrive.
As a CEO and C-suite leader of multiple organizations in a variety of industries, I deeply understand the excitement and challenges of CxO leadership. I've been there...and now am taking every bit of my equipping and experience into being your humble guide and trusted advisor on your unique CEO journey.
I am executive coach & advisor and leadership strategist of THRIVE86400 a premier leadership solutions firm, equipping and empowering executives and leaders to achieve their unique best and thrive.
Several years ago, I discovered the secret to living your best life is achieved by relentlessly pursuing three core commitments. You must Live Confidently, Lead Courageously, and Love Completely.
Easier said than done...Yes!
That's why I have devoted my life to living these personally and have created a platform with unique experiences and programs where I'm able to equip and empower CEOs to achieve their unique best and thrive by living these three commitments, too.
HUMBLE GUIDE AND TRUSTED ADVISOR
I take my responsibility as your humble guide and trusted advisor very seriously.
I've discovered through the years in working with hundreds of leaders that the greatest growth comes when trust is the foundation of the relationship and depth of connection is more than just roles being played but instead lives forever connected.
I've pondered the great honor of being a trusted advisor through the years. From that deep introspection, I've developed a set of core beliefs that guide my thoughts, feelings, and actions as a humble guide and trusted advisor.
As your trusted advisor, I...
» Believe in maintaining a relentless focus on my clients rather than on myself. I bring...
Enough self-confidence to listen deeply without prejudging
Enough curiosity to ask broadly without anticipating an answer
A willingness to see my clients as equal on our shared journey
Enough inner confidence to set aside my own ego and desires
Enough courage to challenge when risk is high
» Believe my clients are unique people first, not an individual filling a role
» Believe that a relentless focus on identifying and resolving issues is more important than skill building and technical mastery
» Believe in showing a strong "competitive" drive aimed at constantly finding new ways to be of greater service to my clients. My intent is to be better for my clients tomorrow than I am today.
» Believe is building relentless focus on doing the next right thing for my clients
» Believe models, techniques, and tools are means to the ultimate end of having a positive impact for my clients. They are useful if they add value.
» Believe that success and significance is linked to consistent quality experiences with my clients. I will pursue deep experiences and take personal risks with clients rather than avoid them.
» Believe in the dynamic nature of life, knowing that professional and personal are inextricably linked. Helping my clients be and achieve their unique best and thrive requires focus in all areas.
I've been blessed with some incredible experiences and opportunities for impact through my diverse career. My journey has uniquely positioned me to be a dynamic executive coach and advisor to CEOs and lead The CEO Experience. Some of those highlights include...

I believe you're either green and growing or ripe and rotting...there is no status quo. We are on a continual journey of personal and professional discovery and becoming all we were created to be.
As much as I help create a pathway to transformation and growth for CEOs, I live this same philosophy personally. I've put high focus on my own development through education and becoming an expert in several areas to serve you better.
