Keith is a highly talented Leader and Coach. He has worked his whole life towards helping others succeed, and he puts together his US Army, Corporate, and Small Business Owner experience to deliver high quality leadership messages and positive impacts on all the people with whom he comes into contact. Keith began his U.S. Army career as an enlisted Medic at Fort Drum, New York. He applied to West Point and was accepted through the Army upon completion of his attendance at the U.S. Military Academy Preparatory School (USMAPS). While attending West Point, his most cherished time was when he served as the Vice Chairman of Education on the Honor Committee. He graduated from West Point in 2001.
He started his service as an Army Officer in the 1-87 Infantry Battalion as a Military Intelligence officer. Within his first assignment, he was his deployment to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. After 3 years at Fort Drum, he became a qualified Captain and served two tours in South Korea, culminating in a successful Company Command for the Headquarters and Headquarters Company of the 501st Military Intelligence Brigade.
After 6 years as an officer, Keith decided to leave the military to pursue a civilian career. He ran his own property management company in Queens, New York. He then became the Operations Manager and Sales Director for a privately owned self-storage company. He served briefly as a Financial Representative for Northwestern Mutual, and then continued his journey by working as a Director of Client Relations at the Thayer Leader Development Group up at West Point. He most enjoyed helping the elite of Corporate America build and execute some of the best leadership training and experiences of their lives.
In his spare time, he gives back to the communities he cares about the most: Veterans, US Army, West Point, High Schools (especially Townsend Harris HS), Baruch College, and the Association of Talent Development, just to name a few. He enjoys developing peer, mentor, and business relationships with those who believe in making their life and/or business journey "a team sport with true value". Using his leadership and coaching abilities to their fullest, Keith is a partner at PowerTies Consulting Group which has become a great resource to his beloved executive and business owner clients worldwide.
Keith earned his MBA at the University of Phoenix in 2015. He currently lives in Queens, New York with his wonderful wife and his adorable two sons.
Dr. Deborah Crowley is a graduate of West Point (Class of 2001) and the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. She is Board Certified in Psychiatry and Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. She completed her child and adolescent psychiatry fellowship in 2010 at Tripler Army Medical Center in Honolulu, Hawaii. Dr. Crowley is a member of the American Psychiatric Association and American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.
As an active duty Army Officer, she has had over 14 years of experience in leadership application as well as clinical experience. Her deployment to Afghanistan in 2010 offered her many leadership and professional experiences in demanding, ambiguous real world environments. She is a great example to women in her profession. She is not only a military professional and an accomplished physician, but she also is compelled to give of herself in other ways.
In addition to her military physician practice responsibilities at Ft. Riley, Kansas, Deb has become involved in an outreach to patients in the civilian community as part of the “Katie’s Way” program. This endeavor is a division of Mathis Rehab Centers, LLC which is well respected in the area. “The Mathis family established Katie’s Way in cooperation with The No Stone Unturned Foundation to provide services that promote children’s social-emotional development, prevent development of mental health challenges, and address socialemotional problems that currently exist. They accomplish this by using evidence based strategies as well as innovative therapy programs that specialize in serving children and young adults” (Source: http://katieswaymanhattan.com/about-us/). In this capacity and in her professional career, Deborah has given multiple presentations to small and large audiences on various topics including: Safety in Child Services, Medical Practice in the US Army: My Story, and other custom made addresses as necessary. She believes that publicly sharing her experience is a great way to give back to her community and help even more people.
Deborah, her husband, Rich, and their three lovely children currently reside in Manhattan, Kansas (affectionately known as the “Little Apple”), and hope to remain there after she retires from military service in approximately 2021.
