Rusty sees teams as a way to multiply efforts. By leveraging each individual’s skills, we can remove the pressure to be a master of all things. At the same time, he believes that healthy teams are built from healthy individuals, which is why he has committed his career to pouring into people to watch them bring their full selves to the bigger team.
Rusty’s passion for transformational experiences was ignited during his time as a guide and head wrangler at two premier guest ranches in Colorado after college. After four years out West, he transitioned to WinShape Teams, where he has spent nearly a decade creating second-mile guest experiences and creating programming for teams and leaders. Today, Rusty’s role as Assistant Director for WinShape Teams has him pointing the team back toward its purpose and unique essentials, and providing leadership and support to each department. It’s here that he gets to exercise the skills he loves most by facilitating journeys for others.
It goes without saying that Rusty loves the mountainous West, so much of his spare time is spent enjoying the outdoors near his home in Rome, Georgia. He and his wife, Bekah, have two children, Dawson and Ella.
