I Grew up in California. US Army Veteran drove for United Van Lines for 25 years with 30 years in the transportation industry. After ending that career I managed an Arabian Horse Ranch for 5 years in Kerrville, TX. Until retirement. I came on board with MIAP as a supporter in 2010 and became a volunteer in 2011. Started out as escort team leader and worked my way up to State Coordinator/National Training Officer and was voted in as a Member of the Board of Directors.
