Like many of us, I have been very fortunate to have had many different experiences and opportunities in my life, both personally and professionally. Some doors have closed, and I have leapt out of open windows (not literally!) to try new and different things. I feel these experiences and the usual and customary ups and downs of life, help me connect with clients, demonstrate empathy and ask questions to help them experience new events in their life and achieve success.
Some things you may not know about me above and beyond my professional bio.
