Angie became fascinated by human behavior after observing people’s behaviors in the Operating Room when she worked as a Certified Surgical Technologist (CST). She was fascinated by how the leadership in this environment (surgeons) affected the entire team and ultimately affected patient outcomes both positively and negatively. As she worked through her career as an educator of CST’s at Boise State University and College of Western Idaho, she began studying human behaviors and she received her Master’s in Human Resource Development. She is certified in DISC, Driving Forces, and Emotional Intelligence by TTI Success Insights.
Angie has held several board of director positions, including the United Way of Southeast Idaho, Women United, and Business Women of Pocatello. With her authentic and nurturing approach, Angie’s contributions include board effectiveness, board development, and executive board leadership.
