"My goal is to help thousands of people take ownership of their career and create fulfillment in the work they do", says Scott.  "I want to help people create a path in which they're doing what they want to do, not what they feel they have to do or should be doing. Create Your Great, and enjoy what you are doing today and every day."

Scott recently spent over 5 years with CVS Health (Fortune 10 company) in Leadership roles in which management skills and personal accountability were essential, and now he wants to expand on and share what he has learned and continues to learn outside of the corporate walls. Scott lives in Boston, MA, but he likes to be known as someone who will travel to and be anywhere where he can provide value.
