          • 1976-1979, BS

            LMU- A well Rounded Academic Education

            Majoring in Sociology and Minoring in Philosophy while at LMU helped me to understand people in a way that has helped me in my career. Becoming an executive at three major life insurance carriers in the US in sales and marketing, my education gave me a unique understanding of how to motivate our sales team and provide products that were needed by our consumer base. Becoming an independent financial advisor at a time when our economy was at a low point forced me to dig deep and move forward with confidence as taught to me while a student at LMU
