Like many people today, I have had many forks in the road of my professional and educational journeys. I have two B.S. degrees, one in Industrial Safety Management and the other in eBusiness. I also have an MBA in Management and am currently studying to be a deacon in the Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh. Along the way, I was a Food Service Director, trained as an Air Traffic Controller, was a volunteer firefighter/EMT for about ten years, and eventually found my home in healthcare business development with Essity. Last, but not least, my bride and I have been married for a little over eight years. We met playing softball (I played shortstop and she played second) and were known as the best double-play combination in the CAC.

Let me begin with this thought:  While education and careers define what we do, it’s ultimately family and relationships that define who we are. What I’ve Done First off, my educational journey […]
