I have been a lifelong Douglas County resident and business owner for almost 30 years. After graduating from Superior Senior High School in 1985, I continued my education at the former WITI Superior receiving a Associates Degree in Accounting and a Business Computer Certificate in 1987. After WITI I enrolled at UW-Superior taking classes in Small Business Entrepreneurship which lead to becoming the first tenant of the Business Incubation Center located in Hawks Hall on the UW-Superior Campus in January of 1990.
Winter Systems Computers operated from the Hawks Hall location until March of 1993. My business then moved to downtown Superior for a few years before co-locating at the present location with Tri-State Business Systems at 2829 Banks Avenue in September of 1997.
During the past three decades, I have been involved with many organizations including the Superior Jaycees, Superior/Douglas County Chamber of Commerce, Superior Rotary, and Douglas County Historical Society just to name a few.
