I retired from the Postal Service in 2013 after 35 years of service.  The last 10 of those years I taught drivers safety and defensive driving to Postal Carriers.

I have been involved with driver’s education since 2001. I enjoy being in the car with the students for the hands on part of the training.  I believe a calm and positive atmosphere is important in a learning environment. I enjoy the outdoors, writing and playing my favorite role
