Walt has been helpful in so many ways. He’s not here to sugar coat things for me but rather to push me in the right direction so I can continue to grow. He asks some difficult questions that really get me to think. He’s always flexible and timely with scheduling. He is someone I’ve grown to trust.

Work with me!
