He credits Zig Ziglar for his personal philosophy of believing that you can get everything in life you want – if you just help enough other people get what they want.  This simple yet powerful quote is Todd’s cornerstone value and has been his greatest reward as a therapist, leader in the community, and advocate for over 30 years.
