Personal Note

Two of my greatest inspirations and accomplishments are my children, Sara and David. Although as a parent I have been responsible for their growth as responsible and loving human beings, I note that they, in turn, have helped me to grow and see the world with new and fresh eyes everyday and not to be satisfied with the "status quo".

One of my favorite places to go is Hawaii, specifically the island of Kauai . There is just something about looking out on endless miles of ocean that makes you appreciate the stillness and quiet of moments away from work and the opportunity to recharge your mental, emotional and physical batteries.
