I moved to The Villages in December 2002 from Massachusetts where I have always resided. After three years of playing golf and enjoying The Villages lifestyle, I decided to go back to work.

I moved up to a roving Assistant Manager for Hacienda Hills, Orange Blossom, and Tierra Del Sol in September of 2010. An opportunity came up to be Assistant Manager at Hacienda Hills in April 2011 and this is where you can find me Wednesday through Fridays. For relaxation I enjoy golfing, bowling and lounging by my pool with a good book.

My selection as an inside assistant manager is an honor and I look forward to the challenges and responsibilities of the position.
