    I love making ceviche when we have a fresh catch of saltwater fish. We have tried flounder, vermillion snapper, mangrove snapper, sea trout, and red fish. Red fish definitely works the best!

Consultant Insights

  • My ideal client is someone [an organization] who:

    Is ready to face what they would rather avoid, has the courage to look deep within themselves, has the willingness to embrace necessary change, the faith to move into action, and the trust in themselves to create the life they want.

    I see all of the greatness my clients often overlook in themselves. When they start to see themselves as I see them, magic happens!

  • My philosophy on life is:

    Every day is a gift or a burden; a blessing or a curse; a joy or a drudgery; a beginning or an ending. We are free to choose what we see and that is where our freedom and the human spirit coincide.

  • I hope my legacy is one of:

    Living a life of gratitude and kindness; and choosing to be a blessing to others whenever it is within my power to do so. My desire is to equip as many people as possible with the knowledge, skills, and application of Equilibrium principles to make the world a better place.
