Jeff's story

Jeff’s love for all things entrepreneurial started with a lawn mowing business at age nine. Later businesses in decorative painting and real estate helped him become adept at growing relationships, building connections, and providing over-the-top customer service.


In the U.S. Navy, he experienced the power of working in an inclusive culture as part of a diverse yet cohesive team.  He saw what a well-trained and committed workforce could accomplish.  He also witnessed the effectiveness of checklists, maintenance schedules, systems thinking, and the awesome impact a great leader can have on a team.


Since that time, he has applied these lessons to the fields of workforce development, economic development, team building and leadership.
