Share Happiness Evangelist
Introduction
Have you found your destiny? I have! I am an Evangelist of Share Happiness at Bluegreen Vacations where we believe in the power of vacations. In the economics of happiness, we know that more vacations equal more happiness. That being the case, we are simply Gung Ho about the experiences we provide and the talent that helps us make the world a happier place. 

Thanks to Bluegreen Vacations, I have over 15 years experience as an HR professional in a corporate setting. My goals currently center around Inspirational Leadership, developing greater depth in Human Resource Development, adult learning and organizational performance improvement. Strongly committed to the implications of the service-profit chain and realizing value through a work environment populated with satisfied, loyal and productive associates. I believe that truly vital organizations have the potential for untapped levels of performance that capture a balance of the two ultimate outcomes of any large-scale human collaboration (i.e., organizational effectiveness and organizational health). Further, I believe that organizational health enables organizational effectiveness but not vice versa. Organizational Health is then an outcome or the collective destiny for any organization that is up to the creation of a habitat for happiness!
