About Me

I’m a consultant and coach who helps leaders and organizations build strategies that transform their culture and employees. I’m fueled by a dedication to helping develop stronger relationships between leaders and their employees. I offer consulting and coaching on the importance of culture, putting employees first and the role leaders play in accomplishing both.

I bring a diverse background to consulting, influenced by past experiences with small companies, global organizations, and government sectors. These previous engagements range from one-on-one coaching sessions, to multi-year company engagements. 

I authored “The Success of Failure,” a coming-of-age fable about learning from mistakes to become the person you were meant to be. You can also find me as a keynote speaker discussing employee engagement, HR, and leadership.

I hold a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Illinois, and an MBA from the Indiana University Kelley School of Business. I’m certified as a coach in Emotional Intelligence (EQ-i 2.0® and EQ 360®), and I am an adjunct professor and leadership coach at Butler University’s MBA program. I also serve the community at HEAR Indiana and live near Indianapolis with my wife and three children.


My favorite question for clients is, “How can I help you?” I use the answer to help leaders develop people-centered strategies they can implement right away. 

Even as leaders, the thoughts and beliefs we have about ourselves can hold us back from our day-to-day life.

The Success of Failure provides a path to allow any leader, young or experienced, to learn how to pick ourselves back up and be stronger than before.

"The Success of Failure puts a human perspective on lessons that apply to the entry-level manager up to the CEO. The book features relatable characters that inspire thoughtful change in both behavior and mindset. It’s a must-read for anyone who wants to improve themselves and the people they lead." 

— Nick Smarrelli, CEO GaddellNet
