I have a diverse background in marketing and finance. I have worked in commercial real estate leasing and development and founded an international wine exporting and marketing company. I have also worked in the long-term care insurance arena. Now retired, I try to involve myself in making a difference in my community in a variety of ways. Regarding my work with ABF, I believe that knowing natural spaces such as the Anza-Borrego desert will help people yearn to conserve it for future generations. I have a University of Pennsylvania Finance degree and an MBA from Harvard Business School. I love living in Cardiff by the Sea.
