About

I have grown up in the hospitality industry and love it!  I have been serving guests for over 26 years, and have always loved to cook!  From the early age of 8, I was eager to learn everything I could about food and restaurants.  I am no stranger to hard work, starting as a dishwasher at the young age of 14, and balancing school and work.  Throughout the years, I fell in love with customer service-based businesses.  Starting at The Keg Steakhouse & Bar in 1994, I worked hard and was promoted to management at age 20, and have not stopped developing, learning and growing as a leader since!

I am an outgoing, passionate and driven leader that aspires to help local businesses take their operations to the next level!  I am a certified coach that will support your leaders and team to drive excellent customer service and operational excellence.  I specialize in coaching, recruiting, hiring, training, and developing great team members and leaders at all levels.  I have a proven track record of achieving growth and driving profitability by putting the customer first and the team member a very close second.  We have helped over 20 businesses grow during the pandemic!

Having worked at Starbucks for over 10 years, the largest coffee chain in the world, I have learned and mastered how to create high-performance teams to elevate your business.  I will leverage my extensive network to build your team and help you create a solid foundation for long-term growth.  Together with my team, we partner with you to design, implement and improve your operations to drive more customer engagement and improved operational excellence to transform your business.  I take a very hands-on approach and build the capacity and capability of your team for long-term success and profitability; shoulder to shoulder with you.  I also LOVE coffee and tea!
