Community and Customer RelationsI am a trained facilitator who has experience helping groups reach consensus.
When I worked as a contractor for the Missile Defense Agency, one of my assignments was to find a way to develop positive relationships with individuals known as "hard to get along with" as our success depended on peoples' willingness to share information with us. I soon discovered that I enjoy getting along with difficult people.
I have experience dealing successfully with people from all walks of life from the janitor at a public event to an admiral in charge of missile testing and anyone in between.
I am active in my community and believe in the importance of building bridges between people with differing ideas and backgrounds.
