    Originally from out west I moved to south west Florida in 1995. It took me a while to get used to the climate change but once I did, I started to appreciate the everglades and all the beach has to offer. I have been working for Germain BMW for 6 years and look forward to many more. The best part of my job is understanding customer concerns and meeting needs for quality service.

    I have been in the car business for over 8 years, all with Germain BMW.  After 8 years in the hospitality business, I decided to pursue a career in the automotive business.  I narrowed down the cars that I would like to own and BMW was the product that came out on top.  I am originally from Chicago and relocated to the Naples area in 2001 to be closer to my family.  Since then I have started a family of my own and we recently welcomed our second child into our lives.  Living in SW Florida and helping people acquire the Ultimate Driving Machine has been a true blessing.  I look forward to working with you!
