THE BEST PART OF MY JOB: Being completely independent of any outside corporate influences, and helping the people whom I am allowed to serve. It may sound odd, but when I am able to assist a client in a way that they never even imagined, I get a real sense of accomplishment and satisfaction.

LITTLE KNOWN FACT: I spent an entire afternoon with President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush in their owner's box when they owned the Texas Rangers. Just Laura, George and me...they were two of the most cordial and polite people I have ever met (and George has a GREAT sense of humor!). The signed scorecard is framed and hanging in my office!
