About Me

A Look Into My Experience and Background

Having Fun Along the Way With Colleagues, Customers, Partners, and the Community

Hello!  My career’s journey is in helping build and shape experiences in the market that aim to make lives easier, healthier, safer, more productive, and rewarding.  I have spent the past twenty years working in both the consumer and business markets where I spent fervent energy leading tech start-ups to great heights or serving in executive leadership, where I shaped and led large teams achieving monumental impact.

All of my experience has had a common focal point: The Customer.  I learned, and have continually taken with me, that when focusing on the customer first and foremost only will you find the ability for the business to thrive at a simpler pace and scale.  There is something powerful and magical when both a customer and the business converge in a way that both are thriving!

My devotion and deep passion for curating and delivering meaningful customer experiences is what has made my career joyful and with purpose.  My most recent roles are as Chief Customer Officer, Customer Experience (CX), and Head of Customer Success.  I find it a privilege and honor to serve in these recent roles as I continue to forge new ways to stay true to my life’s work in delivering smiles to customers because we made life easier, healthier, safer, more productive, and rewarding.

The Journey - My Ride

Choose a job you love so well because only then will you never feel like you're working a day in your life.

Confucius, with a little BP spin!

I always aim to bring a positive energy in what I do, and manifest this with the people I get to work with, whether it be with my team, customers, partners, etc.  This isn’t to suggest challenges aren’t always hovering around.  What I am sharing is that, in my opinion, it is in how you embrace and handle the mountains.  

Throughout all of the sprinkles of triumph, disagreement, invention, hardship, exhilaration, ideation, negotiation, difficulties, alignment, and focused intensity there is goodness being shaped in the mission at hand, the customers we impact, and in the bonds forged with colleagues.
