One of the most influential experiences in my life was being on the Holy Cross wrestling team. I learned three lessons that have guided my philosophy on life: Hard work pays off, and, NEVER, ever, give up, and, do not waste your energy getting upset about things you have no control over.
I have been in the financial services industry for over 35 years. After attending Holy Cross High School, I graduated from Fairfield University with a B.S. in Accounting and later went to UCONN where I earned my MBA. My concentrations were in Finance and Marketing. I also graduated from the National School of Banking, with honors. Initially, I started at Naugatuck Savings Bank in 1984 as an Audit Assistant and worked my way up to Vice President, Director of Finance. I particularly enjoyed being able to help manage the bank’s assets during times of high market volatility and helping to provide financial stability for the institution.
In 2005 I chose to become a Financial Consultant. I was able to use the knowledge I acquired in corporate management to help individuals and families plan, implement and monitor their financial futures. I find great satisfaction helping people work toward their financial goals and investing their hard – earned assets, especially during times of high market volatility. Currently, I hold FINRA licenses 7 and 66 held with LPL Financial.
I am proud to be a lifelong resident of Naugatuck, CT, where I believe in the power of community, public service, and giving back. I am currently the Treasurer of The Naugatuck YMCA, and Vice Director of the Quassapaug Sailing Center. In the past I have served on a variety of non-profit boards that include the United Way, Chamber of Commerce, Naugatuck Adult Education, Tri State Alpine Ski Racing Association, NAVA Ski Cub, and Naugatuck Youth Soccer. I also coached youth soccer and ski racing, and I am also the former Alpine Ski Racing Director at Catamount Ski Area. I aim to help the residents of both Naugatuck and the Greater Waterbury area.
