I was raised in Sussex NJ located along the Appalachian Mountains. At an early age I developed a passion to snow ski and enjoy the beautiful outdoors. I spent my summers on Cape Cod, MA were I enjoyed the coastal adventures and beauty of the ocean side. Throughout middle and high school, my parents taught us work esthetics by encouraging us to have summer jobs while staying on the Cape. An amazing experience I contribute to my hard work and dedication to my career. Soon after attending the King's College in NY, I began my adventure to the South.
I love living here in Florida. It is a perfect place to raise my three children ages 21, 19 and 10. We enjoy the beaches, fishing, boating and playing just about every sport imaginable... speaking of which Roll Tide!!
My passions are family, focusing on health & fitness, enjoying nature and of course excelling at my profession. I have been in the banking industry for more than twenty five years and held numerous positions including, City President, VP Commercial Loan office and VP Mortgage lender. I credit my success to listening attentively to my client's needs and then customizing a solution based on their unique situation. This, coupled with an exceptional service model are the keys to my success. Many times this requires a customized solution which is my specialty. This is why in a "one off" business, I have clients that have relied on my business expertise for over two decades. Satisfaction is providing the dream of ownership and financial stability to my clients.
