Tell us about yourself

I was born and raised in Minnesota. I worked at Kraft Foods for 30 years. I moved to Tampa 14 years ago to manage facilities in Lakeland to start up. I found out A Kid’s Place was looking for a Property Manager through and ad on Craigslist. This is the best job I’ve ever had and the kids here make it worth it. Seeing the kids here helps me not miss my own kids so much.
