I've had an incredible and perhaps somewhat unlikely career. After earning a degree in Police Science, I spent 10 years in the hospitality industry where I worked for four Holiday Inn hotels in three U.S. states as well as the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim, where I held four management roles. I learned some significant lessons on how to anticipate guests' needs, meet them, and most often exceed them.
My path then took an unlikely turn when I went to work at the help desk of a company that developed and sold hotel computer systems in Santa Ana. The technical and creative parts of my brain were so stimulated that I went back to college and earned a degree in Computer Science. What followed was a 30 year career in I.T. where I worked for three companies, ending with 17 years at St. Norbert College in De Pere, from which I retired in 2021.
The common thread throughout my career was customer service. I had some important professional development opportunities which added to all of my experiences, making me an expert in serving people, no matter the product or industry.
Now in my retirement years, I've found satisfaction driving for a health and rehab center. I bring patients to appointments and I also pick up patients who are discharging from the hospital and coming to our facility for further treatment. I love serving my neighbors and having the unique opportunity to interact with these fascinating people.
Being open to the will of God has also allowed me to latch onto a new passion spreading the power of the Rosary. I host a weekly Rosary podcast, I make custom rosaries, I repair rosaries, and I serve as a Rosary leader in various settings.
