Professional Bio

It is my life’s calling to help others claim their unique identity, clarify their purpose, and connect to a greater journey of life. Through the New Waters Group, I want to support you or your team as you navigate your next steps – personally, professionally, or organizationally.

Through my 25+ year career I’ve had the privilege of serving in numerous lead roles, including being a pastor, campus minister, and nonprofit executive director. I’ve also had the great joy of being an entrepreneur in building two new companies from the ground up, New Waters Group, LLC and Magic Bound Travel, LLC, and know the celebrations and challenges of being a small business owner.

I want to offer the best of my experience, abilities, education, and training to you so that you can be a more effective leader and achieve your goals in your personal life, relationships, education, work, and service. Whether it’s through one-on-one coaching or seeking my services for desired project or need, I look forward to working with you!
