Will go anywhere for the right position

I place great value in my family. I am thankful for the conscious effort my parents took to raise their children differently than they were raised. My mother was born in Paris, France, and my father was born in Milwaukee, WI. They were married and I was born at Fort Campbell, Kentucky the same year. My service background comes from a European and Mid-Western culture, since I was raised in Wisconsin. I have a high work-ethic that flourishes in a cultured and structured environment.  However, I am also able to adapt to situations based on my Principals’ standards.  I am a family centered and active individual and value these traits in my employers.

The traditions of Catholicism were very important to my mother. My younger sister and I learned early on right from wrong. It was impressed on us that respect and good manners were always appropriate. Family always came first for all things. I take pride in providing the same nurturing environment to my wife and children. They are given tools to materialize their visions, praise for their successes and sincere support for their failures. I cherish my time with Amy and the boys.

My attitude towards service transcends a catalyst moment. I never thought about service, I just thrived on doing the best job possible.  This work effort continues to this day.  Michael Josephson says “Everything you do sends a message about who you are and what you value.” Or as my mother always says, “If you can’t do us proud, do us no shame.”

Testimonial: B. Drummond

There are no words to express how ridiculous these accusations are. This seems like an act of an individual that wants to shame and misjudge a woman that has worked hard to make her name and brand in this country, a woman that has been the aide of and for so many members of the African American community and many others from various countries myself included.
