"As executive it was extremely rewarding. I built this region from the ground up. I hired the entire management team and together we grew. I learned how to work with professional recruiters and learned a lot from them since I had only worked with Human Resource Directors as a district and school administrator. Together we nutured and supported one another. We were servicing 51 schools. I never hated the position because my regional colleagues and CEO were great to work with daily."
"I love developing people to be their best. I also enjoy the challenges involved with finding the proper solutions to problems that I see coming down the road, and taking an immediate course correction. There is nothing I really hate about being GM. There are some frustrating moments, but that's true with everything. The trick is, to turn it into a positive, and make it into a gain."
