I have been called a lot of things in my life – compassionate, bold, and a little dangerous, just to name a few. Hopefully, people remember me best for giving a passionate 110% to everything I do. I finally figured out what I want to do when I grow up! I want to create, design, dream, and help people find solutions to all kinds of challenges. I have a very active mind and a unique gift for troubleshooting.
Bold, honest, and forthright are other words that describe me. That hasn’t always made me the most popular person in the room, but it makes for dynamic marketing communications that usually lead to success.
I was a radical 1960’s experiment – starting kindergarten when I was four long before that was considered normal. Scoring a scary high number on the IQ tests that were so popular for defining humans back then, someone had the bright idea to move me to second grade. I found my five-year old self among a sea of giant eight year-olds. Quickly learning self-protection and deciding grown-ups were much safer, I started building relationships with my teachers and staff.
One of my first memories of strategic planning was shortly after my sudden move to second grade. During art class, I finished my painting of a girl jumping rope and wandered around looking at all the other masterpieces in progress. My teacher and favorite person in the world, Mrs. Bowles, rushed over to see if I was okay. Protecting me from bullies had become part of her daily routine. I said I was fine but had an idea. I went on to explain that if the easels were turned in the opposite direction, the sunlight from the big windows would really help make the paintings come alive. She looked at me with an odd expression, one I have seen many times in my life since, and thanked me for my observation. The next day the easels were turned and she shot me a very knowing wink! I learned at that young age that I see things other people don’t. That skill is what helps me bring valuable insight to the marketing communication process.
