Y'all should know I'm a native Texan. Yes, things are bigger and better in Texas. No, I don't own a cowboy hat and boots (although I may get a pair to bring a little Texas to Illinois). But I have adapted to Chicago. Who wouldn't like running on the lakefront in the summertime and browsing the Christkindl market in the wintertime?

When I'm not flying between Chicago and Houston, I'm heading overseas. I've been to numerous countries, including France, Greece and Italy. I truly enjoyed eating gnocchi at Buca Mario in Florence, shopping at Printemps in Paris, and meandering the narrow streets of Athens with the ancient Parthenon on one side and a modern business on the other.

Making a Difference

I get enjoyment out of helping people who want to help themselves and making a lasting impact in their lives when it comes to finances. I think many people in America don't have the financial background or general knowledge needed to help themselves or their families to leave a legacy for the next generation.

I believe I am fulfilling God's purpose for my life by impacting other people. It's not all about me. I get more than financial compensation. I get emotionally and spiritually compensated by serving other people, and what I get is nothing compared to what my clients gain.

Whether I'm jetting across the wild blue yonder or viewing it out my window, I'm often found with a book in hand. I enjoy reading classic fiction, thrillers and self-help books.
