Favorite CABMA memory?
This is the hardest question to answer because I have so many favorite CABMA memories but they always start with the Party Bus on the way to one of our social functions. Amazing commonality!

"GRIT" by Angela Lee Duckworth
Love and Basketball
Instagram or Twitter?
Most memorable sporting event attended?
1984 Olympics in Los Angeles. In 1984 you were able to walk through the Olympic Village and meet some of the competing athletes. I met Daley Thompson (Decathlon), Frank Tate and Tyrell Biggs (Boxers), saw the US men's basketball team, track, boxing and gymnastics compete.

What is one of the greatest aspects of being involved in athletics?
Athletics has provided me with an opportunity to work with young people and to play a part in molding their lives. It is rewarding to know that you have developed long lasting relationships with future contributors to society.
Best piece of professional advice you've received?
Do the best job that you are capable of doing no matter what the job is because you never know who is watching. I always say even if you're the garbage man/woman, be the best darn one that you can be.
