Role and Company



30 years experience in insurance


Lake Forest, IL


I have had a varied career as a small business owner, consultant, insurance sales and teacher. I also owned a health care company that served veterans in my area.

I was married to a vet for several years that suffered with PTSD and other war-related disorders. In addition, I just recovered form a long term post concussion episode that nearly changed my life.

Some of my values are: practicality, patterns and connections, insight, vulnerability, and creativity.

I am happy to help veterans in getting their feet on solid ground and finding a path that works for them whether it be in life, business, and I can help you if you want to return to school to get a degree.
