"I help people and businesses be the best that they can be."

It’s true that if you find a job that you love, you never have to work a day of your life! I’ve been blessed to find that job and career. However, in 2009 I suffered a frightening health scare. It has made me further realize that we should all be so lucky as to find our life’s purpose and do so every day with passion as well as be surrounded by those we love. In gratitude to the outstanding health professionals that I have been fortunate to have cared for me, I proudly donate a portion of my total proceeds every year to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
