I am seeking the Secretary position with the Royal Palm Coast REALTOR® Association. I would like to see the Real Estate profession become more professional. We are most often assisting our customers with the largest part of their financial portfolio. I feel that we as REALTORs need to be better educated and in tune with how to best assist them with this enormous decision. I would like to serve as Secretary on the Board of Directors so that we as a group can offer the Members a place to come to share ideas and to learn how to best serve our customers.

I have been very involved with the Association. I am currently serving my second year as a two year Director. I also currently serve as the Chairman of the Professional Development Committee and have served this committee for going on four years. I have been an Education Ambassador/Monitor for four years as well. I served on the Technology and Trends Committee for two years and served as BOD liaison in 2018. I currently sit on the Finance Committee. I am a member of the 2016 Leadership Academy as well as a Task Force member for the current class. I am currently a Florida Realtors Director and member of the Florida Realtors Professional Development Committee.
I have served on the Board of Directors for my local Homeowners Association for several years. I was committed to making our community a better place for all of its members. I served as a volunteer Reserve Police Officer in Cape Coral from 1976 – 1983 and watched that city grow. I was also a member of the Alpha Phi Omega National Service Fraternity at the University of Florida and served as an officer. We assisted with student registration, provided daily manning of the campus info booth, as well as completed numerous projects and fund raising both on and off campus.

I am currently a member of the SW Florida Chapter of the Harley Owners Group and serve as a Road Captain where I lead chapter members on planned rides in our area.
I majored in Political Science at the University of Florida and currently sit on the Public Policy Committee, having attended Great American Realtor Days in Tallahassee in 2017-18. I enjoy representing our members at local events and improving Home Owners rights as well as meeting with local and state government officials.
