Excited about starting a new chapter after retiring from 23 years as a an independent school business officer. I have been working with independent schools since 1992. Prior to that, I spent 10 years in the life and health insurance business. Prior to my career in academia and insurance, I served 13 years active duty as an officer and helicopter pilot in the Coast Guard. Following that, I served 13 years in the reserves and retired as Captain. I have served on the board of MISBO and have been on the MISBO Insurance Committee since 1996. I was on the Student Financial Aid Services Committee and on the faculty of the Financing Schools Institute of NAIS. Proud to say that I was a founding member of NBOA and have served on the board as treasurer and on two strategic planning committees.
