I grew up in Western New York, north of Buffalo. This was back when they had snow.
I attended the University of Buffalo, which is now SUNYAB (State University of New York at Buffalo) and graduated with a BS degree in Pharmacy. I attended RIT (Rochester Institute of Technology) in Rochester, NY where I earned an MBA with emphasis in finance and marketing.
My working career started in sales for Eli Lilly and Company, where I worked my way up from field sales to covering the entire country as Manager of Group Purchasing Organizations.
After serving in the Army Infantry (E-5) stationed in Alaska, I married my high school sweetheart Donna and we have three boys, three wonderful daughters-in-law, and six adorable grandchildren.
How I discovered Smith Mountain Lake
Numerous corporate moves allowed me to gain an appreciation of real estate, and I quickly learned the difference between an incredible and regrettable real estate experience. I decided to become a licensed real estate agent so that I could give clients a positive experience when searching for their dream property.
I discovered Smith Mountain Lake during one of my many moves, and my only regret is that I didn’t find it sooner. My goal is to help others discover this area faster than I did, so they too can enjoy an area that I really believe is paradise.
