My road in life took a while to figure out.
Getting my B.S. in Forestry was a big milestone for me.
I did not have direction after college. I worked in many different jobs, mostly construction. This ended up being good background for life.
I traveled a little, albeit on a very tight budget.
I used my interest and ability in music to get my foot in the door at Travelers.
Prior to working here, I had not even worked an entire year anyplace else. I never thought I would stay at this job for 36 1/2 years.
I am retiring in 3 days!!!!
