Why Work With Rob?

When asked what sets him apart from others, he replied …

 The single most important thing has been my unquenchable thirst for knowledge as a life-long learner. Many people once they reach a certain level of credential, experience, or success, lose the drive to continue “sharpening the saw”. My love of learning has kept me reading up on the ever-evolving body of research in the areas of positive psychology, neuroscience, mindfulness, and psychology to name a few–all which allow me to continue honing my professional knowledge and skill levels adding even greater value to those I serve.
