Chief of Staff

Growing up, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with my life. It was all planned out from college to retirement. I was going to fly for the Navy, then pilot the space shuttle and when I was too old for that, I was going to be a commercial airline pilot. Well… you know what they say about planning, be flexible!

Flexibility came sooner than anticipated. My eyesight was terrible and I was told no way could I ever fly. It was devastating!

Now of course, I realize that someone had bigger and better plans for me. In 2005, I started working at a venture capital company and the rest as they say is history. I met some wonderful people during those years but there were two that struck a nerve – in the best way possible. Throughout the years, Tracy, Tammi and I formed a close bond and a unique ability to work in unison. Needless to say, when the opportunity came to make a concrete difference in the world, how could I say no. Now I contribute to an incredible team fighting for those who can’t fight for themselves.

Was this my plan in life, no! But is it the best thing I could have ever hoped to do – yes!
