Throughout my career I have advanced progressively into challenging roles that have provided me with opportunities to broaden my skill set. I helped manage and expand a family owned executive training business for over a decade. I then managed its merger and acquisition with a larger non-profit organization. As a marketing and communications manager, I developed collateral material, published websites, established social networking sites and was responsible for growing and developing a network of international distributors. In 2008, as CEO of SimSkill, I consolidated and transitioned over 25 years of historical classroom based workshops into an online environment. This role included launching new brands and products while managing and motivating teams of diverse stakeholders.
In 2012 I decided to leave corporate life so I could focus on my true passion – to become a self sustaining artist. Over the last year and a half I have set up home and studio in the Lowertown Artist’s Lofts Co-Operative, St. Paul Minnesota. I have subsequently dedicated myself to developing a unique style and body of work that will gain recognition and acceptance in the art community.
