For 36 years, Bill was president and owner of a consulting practice, and as an active retiree, still answers a few requests for executive coaching. After serving as a fighter plane mechanic in the Marine Corps, Bill enrolled at Richmond Professional Institute (now Virginia Commonwealth University) and earned a B.S. in Psychology. He then went on the Union Theological Seminary and earned his M.Div. and became a United Methodist minister. During that time, Bill became a local leader in community development, adult education and group dynamics.
In 1972, Bill took early retirement from the United Methodist Church and formed a consulting firm Strategic Solutions, and served a variety of organizations, both profit and nonprofit.
Bill’s main interests are travel, reading, cooking, gardening and enjoying family and friends. He was a volunteer for Comfort Zone Camp’s very first camp and has been a Healing Circle Leader at over 30-some camps. He also served on the CZC board and chaired both the Camps and Services and Governance Committees.
