I then transitioned careers to the financial services industry where I became a Licensed Financial Advisor/Banker. In this role I helped many people with their banking, investment and insurance needs. I have also worked with high risk teenage youth. I'm an Ordained Minister with my Church. I would consider myself to be well versed in the Holy Scriptures. I have taken some courses at UWM and Moody Bible Institute. I have served on the Board of Managers with the West Suburban YMCA.
