Putting myself through college and working untold hours early in my career has helped develop my work ethic as well as my sense of value and determination.
I remember talking with my great-grandfather, hearing of how he and his family had suffered during the early 1930’s, how he had rebuilt his business and persevered. Talking with him and observing his life inspired me to keep life in perspective – things of this world will fade, but people are eternal.
What attracted me to this field is the ability to help people accomplish goals they never thought possible. My very best days are the ones in which my clients experience success in their life’s journey.
