I began my career in 1992 as a graduate of Missouri Auction School. 2018 marks my 26th year as an auctioneer and owner of Charity Auction World. I get a thrill from every aspect of the auction process. I love to collaborate and find that clients like to customize every auction to be unique to their audience and supporters. Together we utilize the strengths of the organization while finessing the less than optimal variables. Clients choose workshops and meetings to reflect their interests and needs and calm the planning jitters. Many of the innovative profit centers like the Dessert Dash, Lucky Squares, Mobile Bid Boards, One Bid Board, Word Up, Lucky Letter, Loaded Bid Paddle, and Heads and Tails - emerged through creative collaboration with the non-profit organizations I serve.
