What was the best business advice you ever received?

Choose a career that allows your self motivation and experiences to display your passion in assisting people.

If you could choose another profession, what would it be?

I love education and hold four different degrees. As an IBMer, I traveled the world as a manufacturing, distribution, transportation specialist in large systems marketing. Afterwards I attended Culinary School then naturally, degreed in dietetics and food science. Retired and relocated to Florida, I'm finally giving back to society as a certified teacher of varying exceptionalities for several years. Needing more personal time, I have found true passion in being a concierge of real estate assisting people in their move to Florida. I really would love to help our nation's economy by helping Port Manatee any way I can in directing imports directly into our port here in Manatee.

What's the biggest risk you have taken in your career?

As teacher of varying exceptionalities I gathered the courage to stand up to the powers that be in the state education system and took the risk of protecting a child that needed additional protection.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you start?

Israel, the hub of our world's major religions. My core being is for unity and peace among all people.
