I have been a local Atlanta resident since 1972. As a local Chamblee / Doraville native, I have witnessed the area develop and grow into its present status. I am proud to be a part of that growth and to serve the community.
I am a Georgia State University graduate with a BBA in Marketing and CIS. My previous experiences include IT Management Consulting with Deloitte Consulting and Ernst & Young Consulting, Independent Small Business Consulting, NASDAQ Trader, Hi-Tech (Biometric) Startup Founder, and Real Estate Investor. I have a very broad range of experience.
So what brings me to education? (I'm asked that a lot) - My daughter.
I enrolled my daughter in Kumon in 2011 at 4 years old and have seen the results. Kumon enabled her to score high on the state Milestones tests which put her on the gifted status. She was able to enter the lottery for the local magnet school for high achievers (Kittredge), to which she was accepted.
I considered opening a franchise business and realized:
- I was already familiar with Kumon
- It actually works - proven concept
- The brand has been around for 60 years
- I can actually give back to the community
So that was the start of my Kumon journey.
