My mother would tell you that she knew I would be in the “influence business” one day. Over the years, she watched me influence people to move in directions that were best for them. When I was in seventh grade I took an Intro to Computer Programming course in my hometown. The leaders of that time said that “Computer programming would be the job of the future.” They were correct, and I did not listen. I liked computers, but not programming them; rather I was more interested in getting them to do things for me.

I love to help people meet their needs whether personal or professional.
I love working with people who want to solve complicated and challenging problems. I have a knack for connecting with engineering professionals and assisting them in solving problems. I help folks procure great people due to my ability to intuit and understand their underlying needs and find professionals willing to engage in an agile recruiting process.
