Community Involvement

Knox College logo

Chair Alumni Council, Knox College

Knox is my Alma Mater, and I am a proud to serve on the alumni council. The education I received helped to shape me in to who I am today. So many of the personal relationships developed there have transitioned into my professional life.

I believe in giving back and investing in higher education. Knox invested in me. Like many small liberal arts colleges, they are struggling in this competitive environment. They depend on their alumni to give back and pay it forward to the next generation.

I spend a lot of time listening to current students about their concerns. As I look back, I had the same worries and looked to people like me to provide guidance. It gives me a great feeling of satisfaction to help these students and to make a difference in their lives.

Past President NALU-North Branch Chicago (now NAIFA – National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors)

Sharing what you know with those eager to follow your career path is incredibly rewarding. Our clients rely on us to represent their interests within the industry, but to also be their advocates on the legislative level, both locally and nationally. Decisions made at these levels can directly impact them and the advice they need when planning for their futures. Today, I remain active and engaged with NAIFA.

My career has personally provided my family and me with some great benefits. Sharing those benefits and what I’ve learned with my clients and my peers through ongoing professional development, is my way of paying it forward on a professional level.

Being well-rounded personally and professionally makes me a better advisor and role model. It enables me to be the objective and proactive source of timely and sound advice they need.

Congregation Or Shalom logo

Past President, Congregation Or Shalom, Vernon Hills, IL

It was an honor serving on the Board and ultimately as Board President. Or Shalom is a place where my family developed life-long friendships. It’s important to me that Or Shalom remains vibrant. I want other families and future generations to experience the same sense of community and support we do. I believe it's important for the congregation to continue to welcome new members with open arms regardless of background or means.
