Tim earned a bachelor’s degree in Habilitative Science and work in that realm for 10 years starting at a mental health center and ending his human services career as the director of a center for independent living—an agency that serves people with physical disabilities.   Tim understands the challenges human service professionals face both as direct service and support staff as well as from an administrative perspective, where lack of funding and staffing issues are a constant threat.

Tim believes that personal development precedes professional development and places his agency training and keynote focus on this critical area specifically.   His keynote and trainings are all high in educational content, inspiring and just plain FUN!

“Your program, which was customized for our group, was tremendously done and a huge success. Each person left with a smile on their face and a lot more knowledge to use at work and in their everyday lives. Thank you again….”
