My Curriculum Vitae and Resume are available.  In short, I have over 20 years of experience in a corporate environment and several more years in small business (retail and service).   I was an Associate Professor of Finance at Midland College for 3 years teaching Finance, Accounting, and General Business courses in both lecture and online.  I hold a Texas Real Estate Broker license, a B.S. in Mathematics from Texas A & M Kingsville an MBA in Finance from the University of Denver, and an PhD in Business Administration with an emphasis in Finance from the University of Texas at San Antonio.

My children are my inspiration, my parents, brothers, and sisters are my support.  I am second oldest of ten children and while I did not finish high school, I was the first in my family to earn a college degree. As of January 2015: NINE of us have college degrees, four of us have Master's degrees, and two of us have doctorate degrees.  The next generation is already raising the bar,  Believe me when I say ... I understand the difficulties that can come up when you are pursuing a goal! But no matter what remember:

"Si se puede " -- Cesar Chavez

or the latest version

"Yes we Can" -- President Barak Obama.
