You Can Call Me, “Al”!

HomeInterviewsYou Can Call Me, “Al”!

Simply put, I love to HELP others. I have a cheerleading mindset and a passion to serve. That’s been the common thread throughout my careers in teaching, packaging sales and now working with seniors and their families.

Seventeen years ago, we made a decision to support my wife Carol’s parents, by relocating to Florida from Connecticut that led to giving them an additional nine years of an engaging, thriving life. That time I spent with them set the stage for where I am now.

Before relocating to Jacksonville, I taught high school science in Norwalk, CT and District wide in all subjects, working with students who were marginalized because of poor choices and behavioral issues. Locally, I taught at Mandarin High School with outdoor field students. Many of my students were not familiar with the outdoors. It was a great experience for them to enjoy fresh air. Today, one of my favorite students, Sage, is the manager of the Metro Diner in Ponte Vedra Beach.

That “Internship of Service” continues to inspire me as I work with seniors and their families in finding ways to age gracefully with dignity.

In addition to my affiliation with Oasis Senior Advisors in service to older adults and their families, I signed on with the Jacksonville Walk to End Alzheimer’s as the volunteer Community Engagement Chair with a goal of reaching $500K in donations this year. I believe this can be done, in part, by me helping others build their teams and cheering them on.

2024 is going to be monumental!
