Personal Thoughts

I started my education in the United States Air Force where I found myself in a world of new people, foreign places and unique experiences.  This taught me the value of teamwork, effective communication, attention to detail and how to be efficient in stressful situations.  After my enlistment, I continued the Air Force life as a military spouse working for Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) where I planned special events for military personnel stationed overseas.  When my husband retired, we returned to Florida where I worked for an association management company planning meetings for multiple non-profits.  Throughout these experiences, I worked for numerous clients from different backgrounds and learned to provide customized support specific to the needs of each client.

In 2009, I was diagnosed with a leaking heart valve and underwent surgery to repair the valve. Thankfully, I was blessed with a successful surgery. This experience changed me as I began to reflect on my life experiences and the many people that have been instrumental in my life.  I wanted to ensure that my life impacted others for good. I decided to volunteer as a Guardian ad Litem to advocate for children in the foster system.  I also mentor troubled youth who need support during and after their time in the criminal justice system.  I thought I would help these kids, but they turned the tables by teaching me new levels of courage, strength, determination, kindness, forgiveness and the ability to see the amazing capacity of human potential.  Appreciating that every person has a unique story has redefined my connections with others adding an increased level of compassion in my professional and personal interactions.

Looking back at my work and life experiences, I found that support roles provide me with the greatest satisfaction.  This realization led me to Resource Consulting Group (RCG) where I use the lessons and skills I have learned over the years to maximize the support I provide to our clients and our leadership.
