"From my earliest experiences-growing up on a small family farm-and later experiences-working in the Peace Corps with entrepreneurial villagers in India building poultry farms and cooperatives, working as a city planner on community development projects-and as an executive and later as a consultant and coach, helping healthcare organizations grow and develop, I have always had a passion to do whatever it took to make the right things happen . to make a difference.
"I was profoundly influenced by two things I learned from competitive sailing and long-distance cruising with my family: (1) You can't control the environment, but you better be aware of it and be prepared to deal with its changes always; and (2) you can only get where you want to go if you are moving ahead and make course corrections along the way-being 'dead in the water' leaves you with no options.
"These experiences continue to drive me today to constantly find new ways to help make the right things happen, even if I hit some big winds and a few bumps along the way."
