Background – My Professional Career Connection
My professional career has focused on developing people, coaching leaders, and improving business performance. I’ve always been a practitioner and advocate for developing the workforce and improving the capacity of the organization to improve the performance of both the individual and the business. A key is connecting workforce development and contributions, all people, all levels, all functions, to business performance. Even though The KLM Group, LLC is new, it’s focus reflects the work that has been my passion for over 30 years.
My Professional Influences
With the help of my business coach, Jim Roman, President of BOI (Business Owners Institute), and my branding and marketing coach, Natalie Toalson McNamara, Founder of Creative Marketing Group, my business is poised to be a source of expertise to help clients utilize a collaborative approach to ensure workforce development bridges the gap between business needs and breakthrough results.

As for the ‘mountains’ in the logo mark, I’ve always been attracted to the amazing beauty and majesty of mountains. They not only help put things in perspective, but they also help lift spirits and inspire people to pursue greater hopes, dreams, and aspirations. The KLM ‘mountains’ is what we use as the foundation for helping businesses become more successful. This can only occur by being intentional in the approach used for greater business success.
Furthermore, the ‘mountains’ in the logo, KNOWLEDGE, LEADERSHIP, MANAGEMENT, reflect the foundations of our approach. They work together in harmony to create breakthrough results in a business.
