On a mission trip to India with a friend, I was introduced to a live-in men’s mentoring program called Alpha Academy. My passion for coaching started to take shape and set the stage for shifting from coaching and training the body to the mind.
After graduating from Cal Poly State University I moved into a full-time position at Alpha Academy working with 18-25-year-old young men who were stuck or lost in life and seeking direction and hope.
After relocating to the Pacific Northwest I was hired as the Human Resources Director at Christ the King Church in Bellingham. where I was introduced to the DISC assessment tool.
It became apparent how profoundly the DISC tool could empower communication and connection between people and within organizations. These tools, combined with my love of coaching, was the catalyst for moving beyond faith-based mentoring and starting Gillette Solutions in 2017.
When not working with clients, I’m out hiking or as an avid racquetball player, you can find me on the courts. During winter months, time is spent cross-country skiing with my family.
