Derrick Sier has a pool of experience that spans community, corporate, non-profit, religious and collegiate fields.

Derrick’s background includes workshop development, producing city-wide projects and dynamic presentations at conferences, community events, and in the classroom. He has a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology: recreation management and a master’s degree in theological studies. This broad experience has equipped Derrick to successfully address the dynamics of any group and meet their organizational needs.
