A good portion of my early professional career was spent working at the United States Department of Energy (DOE). My time spent at DOE included stints as the Head Of Delegation to Russia for business negotiations for the purchase of highly enriched uranium, representing the United States government in Vienna at the International Atomic Energy Agency , and serving as a delegate to the United Nations in Geneva on the Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space. During my tenure at DOE, I had the unique opportunity to work with a diverse group of leaders who helped to shape my early career, formulate my problem-solving skills, and encourage me to reach beyond my comfort level.
Later I had the opportunity to work for the Pennsylvania Democratic Caucus and Rep. Bob Belfanti a 30 year veteran of the Pennsylvania Legislature. Recognizing that I had an entrepreneurial spirit and through the mentoring and financial assistance of Dr. Richard Caruso I left government employment as my interests turned more towards my own expertise in environmental protection; projects that focused on stewardship of our planet; sustainable economic development; and renewable energy. These pursuits led to a variety of business opportunities that also paralleled my mentor’s interests, and my own personal and professional goals of being self-reliant and financially independent.
Ultimately my career path and those who have mentored me has led to the realization that my greatest desire rests in a life of an entrepreneur. Whether I am pursuing my own business goals or helping others realize their objectives my single focus has always been about self-improvement and empowering others to achieve their life’s dreams. Thanks to the many professional interactions and opportunities that were presented to me over the course of my lifetime I have learned to recognize that everyone must come to understand themselves and find out what passion will drive them to excellence in their own life pursuits.
My goal now is to pay these experiences forward helping other entrepreneurial spirits achieve their personal and professional aspirations.
