I had my first leadership position in the non-profit world at the age of nineteen. Since then, I earned an MBA, as well as, undergraduate degrees in Theology, Pastoral Ministry, and Construction and Design.
I’ve also owned two businesses and served fifteen years as a Workforce Development Consultant for a Penn State University Special Affiliate. In that capacity, I designed courses, hired and mentored instructors, and delivered hundreds of presentations for local, regional, and global organizations.
Currently, I coach leaders, consult with organizations, and deliver corporate and community presentations.
Leadership Freak blog began in January of 2010. I started writing because I felt a deep need to share the leadership lessons I was learning. Although I started leading at a young age, the last ten years of studying leadership changed my life.
In addition to writing the Leadership Freak blog, I’m a co-author of, “The Character Based Leader.” You’ll also find my articles in the material of The American Marketing Association, The American Management Association, The Society for Human Resource Management, The Deloitte Leadership Academy, Huffington Post, and many others.
Today, Leadership Freak is read in virtually every country on the globe and has been recognized as the most socially-shared leadership blog of 2012 and 2013. Over 250,000 people subscribe to Leadership Freak’s social media channels.
