I have a plethora of knowledge of baseball since I have followed the game since I was a small child. I played the game as a child, a teenager and an adult and I know the game inside out.

I have coached my 3 kids, while they were in Little League and am currently teaching my grandson the rules and how to play the game.

I have been a season ticket holder for the past 5 years and am a continuous avid follower of this recreational sport.

Career Development

I have over 20 years of experience in Career Development of employees and students.

As a first line manager and senior management official, with the Dept of Veterans Affairs, I interviewed, hired, trained, coached and mentored many employees to enhance their soft skills and technical skills to prepare them for future careers.

While I was a Business Instructor, I taught Communicating for Employment, which prepared students for their future careers. This course encompassed skills such as marketing yourself, resume writing, researching companies and interviewing techniques, to name a few.

While I was Director of Education, I worked continuously with our Career Service Dept to assist students in Career Development and Preparation.

Criminal Justice

In additional to a degree in Criminal Justice, I had many years of experience making legal decisions, while working at the Dept of Veterans Affairs. Once a case was appealed, it was necessary for me to analyze and apply federal law and make a determination. I also had to be familiar with state statutes. I was also responsible in sending cases to the Board of Veterans Appeals & Court of Appeals.

Because of my legal experience, I am able to assist others in evaluating and weighing evidence in many different types law issues.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been a Substitute Teacher in Elementary Education since 2003. I have taught grades K-6 in all subjects. Based on my dedication, professionalism, knowledge, and classroom skills, I have received very positive feedback from staff, faculty, students and their parents.

Throughout my career, as a manager and an educator, I have been able to adapt to all types of students and situations and have been successful in enhancing their education.

Public Speaking

Public Speaking is not easy for those who do not like speaking in front of an audience. I am an experienced Public Speaker, as a Teacher, Manager & Administrator and I have spoken in front of many diverse groups of individuals, both small & large. I also have experience in our community. I was a Precana Instructor and Lector in our parish community for approximately 20 years.

Public Speaking is not only knowing your material but also about knowing how to present it so that your audience understands it and will stay focused on your presentation. It is all about being yourself but choosing and articulating your dialog carefully and clearly.

Study Skills

I have many years of experience working with students of all ages to improve their study skills. As a teacher and Director of Education, I would assist students and show them how to organize material and use time management skills to help them prepare for upcoming lessons and testing. I would also schedule tutoring sessions, before and after classes, to assist students in this area.

Good study skills was paramount during my college years and helped me to maintain and graduate with a 4.0 G.P.A.
