Happy Birthday, Mr. Stan Sanders!

Posted on July 25, 2018 at 4:00 PM

Mr. Sanders just celebrated his 75th Birthday and I was so honored to be a part it! I've witnessed Mr. Sanders give to so many in need and less fortunate. He has been helping the community for over 50 years! It is a true honor to know him and to learn from him each day. He's an excellent attorney and I love working with his firm, The Sanders Firm. 

Lifetime Friends

Posted on July 25, 2018 at 3:55 PM

It is a great pleasure and honor to call these men friends. The Rose family employed me at my first "adult" job at Lighthouse Insurance Agency. I came from a Blue Collar family that didn't understand my inherent need to wear a dress suit everyday...so I am forever appreciative for their assistance in mentoring me throughout my life. Brookhaven GOP Chairman, Jesse Garcia has been influential and inspirational to me over the last 12 years...I know many feel he has impacted their lives and I am eternally grateful for the mentorship, advice and support. Thank you to all of these wonderful men.

Meeting of Great Minds

Posted on June 26, 2018 at 10:45 AM
I am always amazed by truly good men who are inspired to do great things. Last night, I had the wonderful opportunity to chat with Assemblyman Dean Murray - candidate for Senator and Manny Vilar who will also be running for another seat. A big thanks to NYS Independence Party Chairman, Frank MacKay for always bringing people together. I loved hearing from the Assemblymen that my event brought he and his wife together...:)

A Few Good Men

Posted on June 17, 2018 at 5:05 PM

There hasn't been anything that I have accomplished alone in this world...and whatever has happened to me, has been a direct result of the tapestry of my life and all the weavings of individual people; the threads from one to another that created my journey. As I look back at my years, I can see from the perspective of the present moment that every aspect of my life was necessary and perfect. Each step eventually led me to a higher place, even though these steps were often obstacles or painful experiences. I am eternally thankful for Brookhaven Chairman Jesus Garcia for his supportiveness and guidance, leadership and friendship. Not only does he connect people but never expects anything in return. Not only does he help anyone that needs direction, he does so selflessly. I am thankful for the threads of life he and the other men in these pictures have provided me...to weave my tapestry. Each one of them has helped me to create my journey...each one in very special ways. Each one, interconnected because of Mr. Garcia. 

In these pictures, John Rose- offered me my first "adult" job at Lighthouse Insurance when I was just 17 years old and my parents left me to the street.

Tom Kehoe- my mentor, business partner and like a father to me. 

Manny Vilar- my friend and inspiration for business and life. 

Jesus Garcia- there really aren't enough words. 

There is no mistake that I honor these men today...on Father's Day. I am an orphan and the need for truly good men in my life is essential. Thank you to these few good men. I love you all.
