With 20 years of business experience in sales and marketing, I understand the importance of budgeting to not allowing our expenses to outpace our revenue, organization to promote a complete working environment, and marketing to represent our town in a manner that benefits us with businesses and other entities that can promote the long-term economic stability of our town. As a cadet at West Point, I learned leadership skills from the best military leaders in our country's history, and I utilize many of those skills today. I have leadership training in conflict management to recognize conflict styles of others and to take steps towards mediation.
Prior to serving as alderman, I attended the Board of Mayor & Aldermen meetings for six years learning how our town government operates. Since being elected to the Board two years ago, I have researched planning, budgeting, and design and have learned how to utilize all for the long-term betterment of our town.
