I have a wealth of experience in both Psychology and the restaurant industry. Twenty five plus years at all levels of the game! I helped build lasting relationships between independent restaurants to cocreate a thriving restaurant scene in Kansas City and have always been the favorite manager wherever I work!
I have a knack for understanding exactly where you’re at and the desire and training to help get you where you want to be! I am a certified Life Coach with iPEC, the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching, which is an accredited ICF (International Coach Federation) program. I am also a Master Practitioner of the Resiliency Factor Assessment, also know as the ELI (Energy Leadership Index) which measures your energy levels in a myriad of life situations and shows where your strengths are and where you may be struggling.
If you are looking to improve your leadership skills, have better communication with your boss and/or staff, attract, hire, and train the highest qualified people or even move out of the restaurant business, I have some amazing skills and tools that can help you find the life you are craving!
