I was born and raised in the “North Shore” area of northeastern Massachusetts.  I departed the area in 1991 beginning a new life in Colorado where I was married and had three children.  I began the quest to return home in late 2002 when my father began to lose his six-year struggle with Cancer.  I finally was able to return to New England in August of 2003 to be at my father’s side until his passing on December 12th, of that very year.  During parts of 2004, I assisted with the operation of the family restaurant located in Wakefield, MA.  Toody’s, a 60-year-old Italian sandwich shop with a tradition of excellence, was the birthplace of my entrepreneurialism and work ethic.  Watching my father and his father, founder of Toody’s, work the “store” endlessly has inspired my relentless pursuit of success.  I take a certain “pride-of-ownership” in every endeavor.  I enjoy operational trouble-shooting and problem solving as well relationship building, public relations, sales and marketing.  I dedicate myself completely on every project.
