Cincinnati has always been home to me – born, raised, and lived here all my life. Growing up with four siblings fed my competitive side, especially in sports. In high school, SOCCER became the love of my life! The game taught me strength, confidence, and the meaning of a true team effort. I was fortunate to even play semi-pro for a short time. The best part of my life now is my twin daughters. Not surprisingly, they learned to love soccer like their dad and are the reason for the smile on my face each day.
I attended Raymond Walters College while working for a family owned company who trained and taught me the business from the ground up. I later moved into the world of cellular and spent almost 20 years in the industry advancing from sales rep to District Sales Manager and transitioned later to the disposal destruction industry. My approach has always been to listen, learn and develop a solution to remove the burden for the customer and build a long-standing relationship. This is also my belief for life: to approach each day with a smile, listen, and learn.
Being a part of the AED BRANDS family motivates me to carry on the motto “We’re in it for life”.
