We’d love to share more about your professional success with our current and future students – please describe your career path to this point as well as your current profession:
After graduating from Drury, I moved to Ft. Pierce, FL and worked for a Swedish Pre-Fabricated home company for one year. I worked for Paul Revere Insurance from 1996-1997 selling disability insurance. I started at my current company, Croley Insurance, in 1997 selling all lines of insurance, but specializing in property and casualty insurance, business and personal.

How did your experiences in the Breech School of Business prepare you for your professional career?
It gave me a well-rounded education since we had to study different subjects related to business.

Were there any specific courses or areas of study that were especially useful to you?
Since there were no insurance classes, I have to say marketing.

Do you have any favorite memories inside the Breech building?
Having Dr. Strube as an advisor and talking to him is a definite positive memory. He was always willing to listen and help out.

What advice would you offer to a new student beginning their course of study in the Breech School of Business?
Stay focused, enjoy and appreciate every day at Breech and Drury. Four years goes by very fast, and before you know it you will graduate.
