I am a highly motivated and experienced Manager, Coach, Business Builder, Marketer and Team Player. Throughout my career I have worked with some of the best teams and have helped them achieve great results through my leadership and development skills.
I walk in the door each day to bring positivity and to make an impact on someone’s life that day. I have accomplished a lot in my experiences and look for the positives in people. I am results driven and build a highly effective teams with coaching, development and positivity. I have built very successful teams within various organizations and helped coach and develop many others.
I have extensive knowledge of the restaurant industry as well as the online marketing field and have had a lot of great mentors along the way. I am looking for a challenge and somewhere I can bring a new outlook to the playing field.
After working for the past 4 years in marketing, primarily in the Direct Sales and Network Marketing industry I hope to return to my roots and continue to help other small businesses grow. Expanding horizons of small business owners who aren't quite up to date with new marketing trends, generating new opportunities for already successful companies and individuals.

I had the pleasure of working with Luke at Wendy's International for 4 years and 1 year with Baja Fresh. At Wendy’s International, Luke oversaw the daily operations so I could focus on my training responsibilities. Luke followed the standards that Wendy’s set forth to help us run one of the top Wendy’s in the Twin Cities market. Luke’s dedication to the standards and procedures was a great asset and gave me the confidence to let him assist with the management training. I left Wendy’s to take an opportunity with Baja Fresh to start a new Franchise in the Twin Cities, and Luke was my first choice to bring with. At Baja Fresh, Luke assisted in the hiring and training of approximately 40 employees and two managers. Luke’s dedication and passion for running a great restaurant would be an asset for any company.
