    Who has been most influential in your life?

    My mother. She was a district manager for Avon. By example, she’s taught me so much about life, to include how to work with people, taking pride in your work, and much more.

    What are your hobbies?

    My weekends are often spent hunting and fishing. I’ve hunted in all but six states, and as far as we can tell, I’m the sixth person in the world to have harvested all North American waterfowl species. This is a list of 40+ geese, ducks, swans, cranes, etc. and today is now referred to as the “North American Waterfowl Slam.”
