  1. How did you connect with SP Consulting?
    • It’s a funny story about how I connected with SP. Cindy Yaworske and I have known each other through our community swimming pool for the past 13 years. I see Cindy almost every weekend between Memorial Day and Labor Day but not again until the next summer. She has seen my children grow up from infants to teenagers.

This summer, when discussing broken feet (both Cindy and I had foot fractures this year), we talked about the fact I had left my job at AARP. She asked me to send her my resume and, long story short, I met Paul and joined the firm.
