After graduation from Ferris State University in 1985 with two degrees, I entered the insurance business as an Account Executive. In 1990 I joined a professional insurance trade association where I spent 15 years in various positions; concluding my career there as President of their for-profit subsidiary. In May of 2005 I joined NuStar where I am primarily responsible for all aspects of our Sales force and offices. I feel very fortunate to work with an outstanding sales force and staff and look forward to each workday. I am married with two children; one in college and the youngest finishing up High School. I enjoy meeting and getting to know people and spending time with my family and friends. In my spare time you will find me pursuing my passion for traditional archery, hunting, fishing, golfing and pretty much anything to do with the outdoors.
