Currently focused on global onboarding programs. Less coursework, more do work! Stop delivering "talking at them" style training and start engaging their minds, bodies and spirit through conversation, collaboration and hands-on experiences. I believe that that when you take the time to nurture and develop the talents (passion) in others you can light a fire that lasts a lifetime. I'm so happy to work in a field that allows me to embrace this philosophy each and every day.
