I need to live my life knowing that I help others experience the extraordinary experience of life and learning at Saint Michaels. After being there for so short a time and studying the history of the college, I've come to appreciate Saint Michael's as what I call a "miracle in the mountains", and I need to be a part of that, even if in a small way.
My original intention was to enter the Ph.D. program in philosophy at Marquette University in order to be in a position to teach at the college level. Being married, though, and finding that jobs were scarce, I turned to the business field. My family had a real estate business with a small insurance agency, so I decided to take a job with an insurance company to prepare myself to join the family business. After a few years I joined the family business and now own and operate our insurance agency.
