I was born and raised in Nebraska. My leadership style is partly influenced by my grandfather, my family, and my dearest friends and colleagues (many of who you see on this page). I’m an admirer of all people with good hearts, so blogs about relationships and mindfulness are always my default.
I started this blog while working as an elementary principal. Prior to that I worked as a teacher, professional development trainer, leadership consultant, and adjunct professor at the University of Nebraska.
