COML 518 - Transformational Leadership – learning what it is to be a leader and to become an effective and affective leader by teaching others to become leaders.
B.S. in Psychology from University of Illinois; M.D., Southern Illinois University; Currently serves as Associate Dean for Medical Affairs.
I have the ability to listen to clients and help them discern what they need to meet their business goals. Helping clients represent their unique story for successful and positive public reception is rewarding. Having the opportunity to collaborate artistically with other professionals to portray that successful message to the public is a prospect I relish.
Elevator Pitch
Communication is more than the sum of its parts. It is listening to the practical short-term goals a client says out loud and the long-term goals they truly hope to achieve. It is the ability to convey ideas to others and get employees excited about the upcoming changes. As an effective communicator and transformational leader, I have the skills and drive to improve the public image of organizations.
