About This Class

Everyone hears, but few listen.

Active listening is the key to increasing leadership equity, unlocking employee retention, increasing workplace efficiency, and so much more!

What was once considered an innate ability (a trait everyone was born with) has now become a specialized skill; something that takes effort, practice, and intentionality.

Did you know there are four components to active listening? Furthermore, did you know that missing one of the four components means you’re not listening?


“Have you ever noticed how the most intriguing individual in the room seems content to listen sooner than speak?”  ~ Richelle E. Goodrich


Listening used to be an art. Today active listening is a skill that has become a competitive advantage!

I bring a truly unique combination of skills to the table. My experience (and passions) include the following: Branding, Business Analysis, Marketing, Creative Ideation, Production, Technology, Leadership, and more.

I am a mature, self-aware, well-balanced professional.

I have worked in brand communications for over 20 years with extensive experience creating brand experiences through video, web, social media, television, animation, events, graphics/logos, photography and more!

I am a Creative at heart, but grounded with a degree in Business (Finance). That means I am just as comfortable working in Excel as I am with Photoshop, Premiere, WordPress, and any of the social platforms; I am equally “at home” behind my desk or behind a camera.

My leadership style is anchored in my inescapable desire to train and develop others while encouraging (and expecting) excellence. In addition, my deep proficiency in business, technology, creativity and production means I earn the trust and respect of my team and cross functional departments quickly.

I learned the value of persistence, toughness, consistency, and self-discipline through sports like soccer, wrestling, football, karate, and track. I understand how to glean value and meaning out of a bitter loss, but more importantly, how to turn that into motivation for an even bigger win.

My desire is to bring this sense of “fight”, encouragement, leadership, creativity, analysis, and excellence to every brand I work with.
