I have 40 years of Retail Management experience. I am the person they send in to fix things. Call it a Store Focus Specialist, a Smoke Jumper, an Outlaw. I can work within the system or go outside the box when needed. I love walking into chaos and bringing order. I am not a key word person and my education came from mentors not schools. I believe that everything that we do starts with hiring the right people. Driving sales, merchandising, customer service and metrics are just keywords until you hire the right people. My top talents are Recruiting, hiring, training, associate development, and going into a focus store and turning it around. Most importantly I believe in people and that if you teach them, develop them and believe in them they will do far more than they thought possible.

There was a song within her that needed to be written but the keys sit silent, the room filled with a void where the music should have been.  Her last album never charted and deep inside she knew she...
Tears seem to be our emotional register.  They are the nemesis of laughter.  They are ever-present, just off to the side, hidden within the shadows of our joy, and waiting anxiously to see if we need them.  They are...
It was a hot July night and their time together was nearing an end.  He would soon be boarding a train and heading to Parris Island and then off to Pearl Harbor.  They had met two days ago as...
It was well after midnight and I had miles to go before I reached my destination.  In 1993 there was a late February nor’ easter blasting its way up the east coast with high winds and torrential rain.  After...
