About Arete

I have a degree in elementary education and taught math for four years at a private school in Buffalo, NY. I returned to school to get an MBA and had a 35 year business career. I retired as the CEO of a small toy company in Minneapolis, MN. I moved to Naples 5 years ago and I have been doing business consulting but want to return to the interaction with young people.
I enjoy being with young people and helping young elementary children improve in basic skills and enjoy advising young adults in pursing their career interests and passions.

As the CEO of a company I have significant experience speaking in front of large audiences and small groups and I can help individuals outline their thoughts and gain confidence in their abilities.

I have managed my career very well and obtained any opportunity that I set my mind to. I believe that one should follow their passion and have lived by that and always pursued my interests.

I taught elementary school for four years - 5th, 6th, and 7th grade math.

I have an MBA in marketing and have successfully developed some of the best marketing campaigns for Crayola, Mattel, Dixie and other major brands and companies.

I welcome parents who need help with their elementary students as well as young adults who are looking to learn from a retired business executive with significant success in the consumer package goods arena.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a B.A. in elementary education from the University of New Hampshire. I taught fifth, sixth, and seventh grade math for four years in a private school in Buffalo, NY. I student taught in a multi-age classroom in Madrid, Spain with children ages 8 - 14.

Marketing

I have an MBA in marketing from Cornell University. I have developed, introduced, and marketed some of the most well-known brands in consumer goods. In 1990, for example, I retired the old Crayola crayon colors and introduced new ones - something that had never been done before.

Public Speaking

I have been in the business world for 35 years. I have been the general manager and CEO for a few companies. I have served on the Toy Industry Association board. I have significant experience speaking in front of companies to introduce new products and present new marketing programs.
