Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?
I have many years of experience as a professional risk manager. For over 15 years, I was vice president and director of insurance for ABM Industries, Inc. After retiring from that position, I relocated to the Folsom area and decided to start an insurance agency so I could give locals and small business owners access to the same professional expertise normally available only to major corporations.

I worked at a mink ranch and learned that hard work is always fun.
How are you involved with both the community and your customer?
I’m involved with Hope Presbyterian Church, Rotary International, and numerous other charitable organizations.
What life accomplishments are you most proud of?
I flew hundreds of combat missions in Vietnam and was awarded three Air Medals and the Presidential Unit Citation.
Where do you go when the going gets tough?
God is always there if you seek his guidance.
What’s your hidden talent?
I speak Vietnamese.
What’s your biggest job perk?
Meeting a lot of really great people.
What’s your favorite place to eat out locally?
And finally, customer service is…?
Listening, putting customers’ needs first, and always being available.
