Day job/career: I am proud to say that I am a full time mother and wife. In our home, we jokingly have assigned me the position of “"Director of Logistics and Procurement for the Brown Family.” However, my 19 years experience in counseling and school administration only scratched the surface for the skills needed to be successful in my current role.
How did you become involved with OCL? I stepped away from a career as school principal to stay home and foster the growth of my young children, deepen my family connection, and enrich my community. Being home was amazing, but I knew that I was still not connecting with my family and community in a whole hearted manner. I felt a disconnection that I could not put my finger on. My goal of staying home was to make a dynamic impact in my children’s lives, but I didn’t know how.
After revealing these feelings to a friend that works at Barry Wehmiller, she suggested I take this course, a simple FREE three day course. By implementing and being mindful of the tools and insight imparted through the course, I could see a dramatic impact with my children.
Once I had this realization, I knew that this was the means that I could serve my community. I know the impact that “listening” has had on my family and I am honored to be able to share this with others.
After all my college debt, it’s ironic that this class has had the greatest impact on my life.
What is your hope for OCL? My hope for OCL is that the world would have more individuals that are focused on creating connections and relationships- not networking for the next big deal. I am humbled to know that I am a part of a movement that ensures that my children will live in a world that values their unique strengths, truly listens to their heart, and sees them for who they are- not the position they hold.
