My Story

For over 20 years my license plate has read LRN 4VR (Learn Forever). I have lived that motto passionately. I have now added: Live the Learning and Share the Learning.

An insatiable curiosity and the desire to make the world a better place have been the driving forces in my life. When first introduced to the school library in 4th grade, I began reading biographies; starting at the A’s and proceeding through the Z’s, one book at a time. At age 10 while washing dishes for my family of 7 I would recite speeches I would make when I became President and could change the world. I hosted MDA carnivals, worked as a candy striper, lobbied for a trash can in a neighborhood park, and started a recycling center at the age of 15. In London, although unable to work legally, I visited homebound seniors. I currently volunteer at Fauquier Hospital and serve on the Board of Leadership Fauquier.

Through a career that has spanned over 38 years in the fields of law, international business, training & development and health care I have developed a talent for assisting people in learning new ways to tackle challenges, and to use their creativity and imagination to develop focus and clarity for success in personal and career achievements.

I am committed to enabling everyone I encounter to live their best possible life, reminding each and every one of them that “What you believe, you can achieve – When you believe, you will succeed.” I’ve seen the results, and that’s what I live for.
