 When And why did you become a SCORE Counselor?
Having learned of Score while active in the Chamber of Commerce, upon my retirement in 2000, I saw becoming a member of Score as a way to continue being active in the business community. Especially,  for the opportunity to give something back to " small business " which had been good to me in my career.

Business Background:
My  career was in Commercial - Business Insurance & Risk Management working with many types of small business, and association with many Trade Associations. Over the 46 years of my career, all with the same company, I held various positions, including direct sales and sales management; 15 years as Regional Vice President with responsibility for the Company operations in the eight Western States.  Also, 3 years at Home Office with National responsibility.

Educational Background:
My college level training extended over 10 years, primarily in evening course work, and also in correspondence course work with a variety of colleges.  I have an AA Degree in Business Administration and have completed various specialty insurance related courses by correspondence, and in course work at Golden Gate College in San Francisco.

My skill areas to share are those of a "generalist", with specific skills involving business insurance. I'm a good listener and enjoy helping people; people find me friendly.  My primary hobby is gardening; I continue to work to attain my long term goal, "to be able to afford to buy some land, so I'll have the excuse to buy a tractor". In my next life, I'll be a farmer.
