Scranton.  I returned to Christ the King in September, 1984 and completed my studies resulting in a Masters of Divinity awarded in May, 1985.

I arrived in Bristol, Virginia in August of 1985 as the Minister of Religious Education for St. Anne Catholic Church, a position I held until I moved on in 1991.  I moved to Apex, North Carolina and was a full time Youth Minister for St. Andrew the Apostle Catholic Church until June, 1993 when I moved back to Pennsylvania.  I remained in PA from 1993 until 1999 working primarily in the telephone research field and as a host/cashier/bartender at the Red Lobster restaurant in Wilkes-Barre, PA.  I returned to Bristol in the spring of 1999 and returned to my previous position at St. Anne Catholic Church.  I was employed in a variety of positions at St. Anne’s until my retirement in June 2014.  I was blessed to be the host at Matthew 25 Guesthouse in Port-au-Prince, Haiti from January through March, 2015.  I returned to Bristol in 2015 and lived the “retired life” for a short time before obtaining employment at Kroger Grocery store in Bristol.  Shortly thereafter, I came to Driver Training Inc. as an instructor in the Driving Improvement Program.

I live in Bristol, Tennessee in the Pink Palace (a name my exchange students christened my home) with my faithful cat Lucky.  I am still active at St. Anne Catholic Church where I was recently elected to the Parish Council.  I have enjoyed the challenge of teaching the Driver Improvement Class and helping to make the world a better place through safe driving.
