How long have you been a Preceptor?

4 years

What is your philosophy as a Preceptor?

Don't stress on whats yet to come. Focus on the the present so in your future you wont look back and regret any opportunities you did not take advantage of. Make achievable short term goals for your present so you are able to work towards the long term ones in the near future. Get the work done now, so you live life in the future with no regrets and with many goals achieved.

What motivates you to be at Vertus? (what is your “why?")

What helped me be successful in high school was the rapport I had with my teachers and counselors. They are one of the biggest reasons why I graduated high school and went on to receive my Bachelors degree at St. John Fisher College. My "Why" is because I want to by pay it forward by helping students graduate and preparing them for the real world. Not every student is able to have the relationships I had, in school and out, to be able to stay motivated and driven in being successful.

Who are you outside of Vertus?

I am proud Husband and Father of two. I love spending time with my family, working out and going out for a run. I am Crossfit Level 1 Trainer and I love Baseball.

What is your motivational message for students, current or future?

“Once people stop making excuses, stop blaming others, and take ownership of everything in their lives, they are compelled to take action to solve their problems." -Jocko Willink
