Here at Executive Elements, we like to feature fantastic women we think you should know. Some of these women are clients, some are friends, some are women we’ve only just met. But they all have this in common: they are dynamic, interesting women who have agreed to share with us their insights and secrets to success.

My faith, my family, my community.
Dennis – amazing husband, Andrew – son and sunshine – a man with a very positive outlook on life, Emily – inspirational daughter who is married and has our two delightful grandchildren.

Daughter Emily – who hasn’t met a challenge yet that she cannot attain, teaches in an elementary level gifted and talented program, and is a terrific mother.
