Bio:

Being born and raised in Horseheads has provided me with a very
family-based upbringing.  My parents, who set the example for me, were
family oriented, hardworking and active in the community.  Today I am
married with two children.  I have spent the past 36 years living and
raising our family in Horseheads.  The community is important to us and
my goal is to help develop a future that leaves a strong foundation for
my children and grandchildren and generations after.  I graduated from
Notre Dame High School where I participated in various sports and was
elected as senior class president.  In addition, I participated in the
Big Brother program all while working at St. Joseph’s hospital part
time.  I graduated from Springfield College in Springfield,
Massachusetts with a Bachelor’s Degree in Recreation and Psychology as
well as playing college football.  After graduation I moved to San Juan,
Puerto Rico where I started a career with Hilton International Resorts.
 I was employed as the Assistant Director of Resort Recreation for the
Caribe Hilton.  Along with my day-to-day responsibilities, I assisted in
the development of an educational program which was used to train
Hilton International Managers and staff for several Caribbean Island
resorts and hotels. In 1981, three years after leaving home, I
returned to Horseheads to assist with family challenges related to the
death of my brother. In 1982, I entered the insurance industry joining a
local firm as a licensed broker. I sold Property/Casualty, Health/Life
and developed a career in the commercial insurance arena. In 2003, I
started my own independent insurance agency in Horseheads.  The agency
focused on Corporate Aviation as its main source of enterprise which
allowed me to develop business in many states outside of New York. 
Becoming a member of the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA)
provided tremendous opportunities, associations and licensing
initiatives outside of our community.  For a period of two years, 2014
to 2016, I was named President of Airborne, Inc. an aviation management
company that operated and maintained a fleet of corporate aircraft at
the Elmira Corning Regional Airport.  Along with the position at
Airborne, Inc. I still maintained my position at the insurance agency. 
Throughout my entire career I have volunteered in the community as my
parents did during my childhood. Since 1982, I have worked and
volunteered to help in areas of importance that improved our community.
I have been an active member of several community boards, i.e. YMCA,
Senior Center, Family Services, Able II, Red Cross, Elmira Rotary Club,
United Way, the Horseheads Youth Bureau and many others.  Horseheads has
always been home for me and I will continue to live and work here to
provide my expertise to the community in areas where I best fit.
