His professional experience also includes roles as a personal and family counselor, drug abuse prevention program director, medical school professor, and leader of public education reform in the White House initiative “Communities in Schools.” Before helping to start Innovative InterChange, Inc, Charlie co-founded SynerChange International, Inc., an Atlanta-based consulting firm based on the principles of iiChange.

“Upon my first exposure to iiChange, I wrote it off as irrelevant. When I came to really understand it fifteen years later, it became the basis for my personal, family, corporate, social, and spiritual lives and has continued to be for more than fifty years.”
