Community is essential to me, and I donate my time, talent and treasures. Giving back is very important for me and my family. I believe in the mission of Arizona Council of Economic Education (ACEE), an organization that helps ed-ucators teach their children about finance and the economy. I have been on their board of directors for the past five years. Also, I am a member of the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce, the Tem-pe Chamber of Commerce, the Scottsdale Chamber of Commerce and the Phoenix Better Business Bureau. I support several other local nonprofits, including St. Mary?s Food Bank and St. Vincent de Paul, to help underprivileged citizens that have fallen on hard times. Every day my work is different, interesting and sometimes challenging. My goal is to learn something new every day, even with 20 years in business. I enjoy helping people and assisting them in choosing the protection that best fits their life. My favorite part of my career is empowering my team and the customers.
