What you do for PSOW: I am the PSOW cheerleader! I advocate for the entire protocol and etiquette profession through education. Besides being a visionary for the school's growth and business development, my favorite role is coaching our graduates to reach their professional goals and be successful. I enjoy designing curriculum in our courses and workshops that facilitates a fun learning journey for our participants. Providing a great working environment for my team is rewarding to me.
Mantra: Do what you love to do and success will come.

Something Fun about Yourself: I love the 1980's and wish big hair was still in fashion! I like to sing 80's songs in the car with my teenage children, worship the sun on our boat eating fried chicken and boiled peanuts, watch my crazy hound dog swim, shopping (with coupons or during sales) and being polite to strangers.Go Back
