TeamWork WNC began in October 2016 as a public-spirited labor force development initiative centered on weekly WTZQ 95.3 FM interview segments.
In 2017, the focus turned to staffing consultation and a long-term assignment negotiating partnership accountabilities, resource integration strategies and performance evaluation metrics took shape with The Coastal Group.
Then, in 2018, with demand for independent contract services growing throughout our region's advanced manufacturing sector, a co-venture fundamentally guided by Lean Six Sigma was formed. And we call it: AMP-Connect
As an alumnus with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Economics, I proudly serve on the UNC Asheville DMA Advisory Board. Further, I am Lean Six Sigma Green Belt certified by A-B Tech Community College. With 20+ years of experience in reaching ambitious professional goals, there are many victories to celebrate. But I feel that looking steadily toward the future is far more energizing.

Prosperity Keys 1 & 2 — Bring Success To Your Customer
Key # 1: Make Your Value Clear
If you cannot describe the benefit of doing business with you — and provide supporting evidence — in two sentences or less, you either do not fully understand the benefit or it does not exist.
Key # 2: Prioritize The Promise
Steadily delivering the benefit that has been promised to your customer stands on co-equal ground with profit growth. They are not mutually exclusive goals.
Prosperity Keys 3 & 4 — Bring Success To Your Employer
Key # 3: Manage Relationships
If you do not know the amount of profit each customer brings to the bottom line, you cannot allocate resources judiciously. In other words, if you spend more time serving low profit generators than high profit generators, you will open the door for competitors to replace you — and very quickly outpace you.
Key # 4: Reward Client Integrity
Choosing ethics over expediency is a fundamental imperative. You should always have the heart to be loyal to customers who operate by this code — and the courage to separate from those who do not.
