I am active in the community as a member of the Bayfield and Durango Chamber of Commerce and the Durango Board of Realtors as an Affiliate member.

In addition I worked with IBM in the Office Products Division in Coral Gables Florida before becoming a State Farm agent in Florida in 1980.

My tenure with State Farm also includes Agency in Florida, upper Management in California, and an officer in the Company. This experience allows me to understand the needs of the customer and allows me to have the correct communication with the company.
