How did you come to own your own business?
"There was a study done by the Cornell Cooperative Extension of businesses that were needed in the county. The uniform business was one of them. Being a professional and wearing a uniform, I saw a need. I started a business so people wouldn't have to drive out of the area to get what they needed."
What made you want to become a firefighter?
"At first it was being a volunteer. I was a volunteer firefighter for over 13 years before I joined the Fulton Fire Department. I've always had an interest in firefighting."
Why did you decide to get involved with the Parent Teacher Organization?
"It was to benefit the children at the school. When I came on, we purchased a new sign for the school. Currently, we've been raising funds to put a new running track in. We are in the process and hopefully it will be there by springtime."
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
"Continuing to run a successful business. In the past 12 years, we've been successful and I hope it continues. Hopefully by spring we'll have an expansion project under way."
