I am passionate about helping people discover who they were created to be and how they can apply their strengths to help them achieve their goals.
A little about me. I love to learn new things. I have a BA in Business from Calvin College. I have over 25 years of Human Resources experience. My passion is culture and people development within organizations. In 1996 after my first daughter was born I joined GVD Industries and have held various roles within that company. My family and I relocated to West Michigan in 2009 where I currently serve as Executive Vice President focusing on corporate culture & employee development. One of the most valuable lessons I’ve learned over the years – there is power in our diversity. My strengths journey began in 2009 when my husband introduced me to the Clifton strengths assessment. I became a Gallup certified Clifton Strengths Coach in 2014. Since becoming a coach I have had the privilege of partnering with corporations and individuals to help them identify their strengths, set goals and find strategies to apply those strengths within their roles at work as well as in their personal life.
In 2015 I began the Soul Care certification program at the Soul Care Institute & Fuller Seminary Lifelong Learning Center. I completed my work with The Soul Care Institute in 2017. That experience allowed me to take care of my own soul equipping me to better encourage and develop others as they learn to discern the voice of their own heart.
I am passionate about helping people discover who they were created to be and how they can apply their strengths to help them achieve their goals. I am committed to walking with people on their strengths-based development journey. Help them identify what is possible and create a plan to convert possibility to reality. My goal is to encourage, develop and equip others as well as myself as we continue to grow as individuals.
