How I can help you

I can assist those who are seeking information related to small business and more specifically in the food and beverage industry.  I am a retired educator with a 25 year history of teaching business related classes along with curriculum development.  Since my retirement from education in 2004 I have committed to assisting my family in developing a restaurant and banquet facility which had its beginnings with SCORE mentors.  Since that early time I had utilized the SCORE materials as a major contributor to the curriculum developed for our Entrepreneurship Course.  It has been my pleasure to work with other SCORE Mentors to provide real life experience in determining if you may have an interest in this type of industry as well.  My true focus is to create opportunities for folks to not only work for the Kool-Aid Stand but to Own It!
