This year is my 25th year in this wonderful industry. I have two stores in central Florida and go to work every day with a deep commitment to my customers, my staff and the community that supports us. I have previously served on the board of directors for 10 years as a board member, Treasurer and proudly as President from 2012 – 2015. I came from a strong business background, but nothing prepares you for the challenges and opportunities that owning your own business can throw at you. I know that I still have so much to offer SENPA and its members. In an ever changing industry I think it is important to stay true to who we are and focused on why we do this. This southeast region has an enviable reputation of leadership, synergy and plain getting things done and I ask that you vote for me so that I can continue to serve on this board. Thank you.
