Involvement in silicon valley IDEA: Solutions Teams Chair, Global Talent Attraction

I am excited to be part of something bigger than myself or my company. I have lived in the Bay Area my entire life and seen immense growth in Silicon Valley. 

I have been both proud and astounded by all of the amazing concepts and products that have been developed ‚Äúin my backyard.‚Äù 

Having the opportunity to help bring business and talented professionals to our community is something I value.

As one of the co-founders of an international sales training company, I feel that my team and I bring a unique skillset to the table. We will have the ability to help both individuals and companies prosper as well as potentially work side-by-side with them.

My goal is to assist those who come to the Bay Area in any way I can. Our team at Southwestern Consulting is equipped to help anyone- from small teams to thousands on both the sales and leadership side of their business. 

I look forward to working with a talented group of people that comprise the Silicon Valley Idea Solutions Team.
