What is important

to me

  • Family my three children. To be in touch with them almost every day through text or phone.
  • To do a good job in whatever it may be, home or work.
  • All of our time is valuable; I like to be on time with meetings and deadlines
  • Goal focussed through thoughtful reflection, purposeful conversations and teamwork.
  • Follow up and follow through
  • To be organized so that I can meet any challenge that may come up.
  • Relaxing with a book or a movie or nature
  • Live music
  • Gardening
  • I really like to learn, about almost anything. I am curious.
  • To be happy, life is short.

How to support


  • Clear direct communication.
  • I like to do a lot of listening, not a lot of talking.
  • If you want something from me, detailed email or text is the best way to communicate. I can get frustrated with phone tag.
  • If I am not giving you the support you need, tell me. I will not take it personally; I will take it as learning.
  • I communicate much more effectively in writing, my words often get jumbled or I can’t think of the word I am looking for. Be patient and ask me to clarify or put it in writing.
