eNthusiastic, creative, passionate
I started eNthusaProve to help leaders and teams do the important stuff: connect people to their purpose, their vision and their peers, to define processes that maximize their ability to create value and to streamline those processes to maximize contributing that value.
Too often the important is held hostage by the urgent trivial. I have a passion for helping leaders to accomplish the important – creatively, passionately, enthusiastically. I have had the pleasure of helping project teams at top tier organizations such as the US Navy, Tennessee Valley Authority, and Entergy. I have been trusted with roles of teacher, mentor, facilitator, and team builder.
What would my clients and peers say most often about me? That I have a knack for seeing situations in a different light, seeing possibilities even when the situation seems intractable. That I can bring tools ranging from creative idea generation to organizing databases of complex variables.
My engineering background compliments my optimistic energy, providing clients with a way to have a trusted partner who will help their teams achieve results that frequently exceed expectations and often generate surprisingly awesome solutions.
I earned my Masters in Industrial Engineering at the University of Pittsburgh, and my B.S. in Marine Engineering at the US Merchant Marine Academy. I have a Professional Engineering license, am certified as Lean Six Sigma Black Belt and also as a Manager of Quality and Organizational Excellence for the American Society for Quality. I am a qualified administrator of Myers Briggs, finding that approach very valuable for teams and individuals.
I am a published author and a frequent speaker at international conferences on quality, leadership, knowledge management and, my dearest passion, enabling joy in work.
