|SOMETHING SURPRISING||I am a bit of an adventure thrill-seeker. My wife and I have walked with polar bears in northern Canada, gorillas in Rwanda and heli-hiked a glacier in New Zealand. In addition to bungee jumping, skydiving and paragliding, I have also run with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain.|
|FLORIDA ISSUE||Education. Growing the hearts and minds of children who will be the future leaders cannot be overlooked. As a credit union founded by teachers who needed financial products and services that better served their unique needs and budgets, we will always be a champion of education.|
|ALTERNATE CAREER?||I initially started with a pursuit of an accounting degree.|
|PHILANTHROPIC PASSION||The Suncoast Credit Union Foundation has donated more than $25 million to promote the health, education and well-being of children in the counties we serve.|
