My job is to keep the Ambrion ship headed in the right direction and make sure everyone here has the tools to do their jobs as efficiently and effectively as possible.  I enjoy helping everyone on our team hit their personal and professional goals.

 

I love building relationships, which is what really got me into this business 15+ years ago. I enjoy showing people how much fun it can be to work with clients, job seekers, and our consultants! Some people in our industry view our business as very transactional, but I always start my  day thinking about how I will help someone that day.  On my best day I am able to help a candidate, a client and and someone on the Ambrion team! In addition, I love that no day is the same and knowing that what I will focus on at the beginning of my day will change because I will get  a phone call and need to completely shift gears!

 

When I’m not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my beautiful wife and two children who are 7 and 9, and still think that Dad is cool.  I’m sure everyone in our office would disagree with this assessment, but I am going to enjoy it while I can. As a family we enjoy camping, biking, swimming, and spending time at our cabin. We also find ourselves spending a lot of time watching both hockey and soccer as my children are both really involved in their sports. If I am not with my family, I can probably be found mountain biking, playing golf, or playing hockey.

 

My favorite quote is: “Attitude. The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think, say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company… a church… a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we embrace for that day. We cannot change our past… we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play the one string we have, and that is our attitude… I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.

And so it is with you… we are in charge of our Attitudes.” -Charles Swindoll
