Entrepreneurial at heart, at 26 I launched a retail meat business, and at 30 a grant writing firm. I have since sold both businesses to investors. As the former CEO of Prosperity Ag, LLC, I wrote over 300 successful grants in 39 states, yielding nearly $100 million in funding. After selling the grant-writing business, I knew it was time to launch a consultancy that centered on developing people and their potential.
I work in several ways to help clients achieve results including with one-on-one executive coaching, by facilitating peer groups, or by leading boards through change-based planning initiatives.
Building Capacity In People.
As a speaker and workshop leader, I emphasize personal accountability and process improvement. Clients work with me to facilitate professional assessment tools for the creation of customized small group and individual training needs, and to design qualitative market research programs that support better understanding of your customer or employee needs.
I was an Adjunct Faculty member at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) and have designed and taught curriculum for graduate courses on entrepreneurship.
The Indianapolis Business Journal (IBJ) named me to 2013’s 40 Under 40 list of young professionals to watch and in 2015 I was honored as a member of Vance Publishing’s 40 under 40 in Agriculture.
