With over twenty years experience at creating cultures of success in the music world, I have turned my talents to the business sector to reach a larger audience with my message of empowerment and joy in the workplace.  My music studio attracts students who win the highest chairs in All-State ensembles and are offered premiere scholarships to festivals and universities.  My community clarinet ensemble, which I founded and managed for ten years, has received international recognition.  I am also a successful freelance clarinetist, having performed throughout the world.  My jazz career includes performing with The Temptations and The Four Tops.

Innovative thinking has made me a leader in the resurgence of the practice of classical improvisation.  I have presented my research in this area at the 2017 International Clarinet Association Conference and the 2018 Single Reed Summit as well as various other venues.  Classical Woodwind Improvisatory Techniques, my pedagogical method book, is scheduled for release in winter 2020.  My expertise in this area makes me uniquely qualified to help businesses and professionals think outside the box when it comes to innovation, creativity, and problem solving!

This truly has been invaluable!

I can’t express how valuable these tools are to honoring your gifts and hugely advancing your career.

I could not put a price on Dr. Williams program! This has truly been invaluable!


I was STUCK! 


Dr. Williams’s tools, strategies and council helped me to get reacquainted with myself and to separate my value as a person from the job I was doing.  I now have a very clear vision of who I want to be professionally. Not only do I have the steps to get there, but I am on the path. I am ready to fly!


I now feel brighter, lighter and happier!
