You may not know that I am an…

I am an avid snowboarder and love biking and playing sports.  As I get older and further from team sports, I tend to lean more towards individual cardiovascular activities.

Why CH Consulting Group?

After working in the corporate world for many years, I have learned that I love the challenge of building and executing transformational change.  In the consulting world, we are constantly exposed to these opportunities rather than just having to ‘steer the ship.’

What is the most rewarding part of being a Consultant?

I love the moment where the lightbulb goes off for clients and they truly grasp the big picture.  It’s fun to see them mentally piece together how everything should work in harmony to truly gain maximum benefit from our recommendations.

If you were not a consultant, what other career would you have pursued?

I probably would have been a coach of some sort.  I played lacrosse through college and throughout my adult life, and have coached several sports at various levels over the last 20+ years.  It would have been fun to pursue as a full time career.

Outside of work, what are a few things that you are passionate about?

At this point, I have a 6 year old daughter and 4 year old son, so most of my free time is spent with my family.  I love traveling with the family to explore new things together.
