Need Help Understanding Medicare?

Welcome to my website! I hope you find it to be well organized and loaded with information. Medicare can be complex at times because there are so many factors to consider.

I earned a doctorate in Adult Education from the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, in 1998. Five years later I became involved in sales and education within the Insurance and Financial Services industries. I've been at it ever since.

I have presented how to best access medical insurance benefits to employees all over Arkansas, Missouri, Tennessee, and Kansas.  I became active explaining Medicare health insurance in 2005, and have completed at least 300 hours of certification training. I am a Medicare recipient, and I'm glad to share my personal experiences with both Medicare Advantage and Medicare Supplement plans. I helped design a 4 hour presentation that was mandatory for employees to take before working in Affordable Care Act call centers. I presented this course to hundreds of workers. I've volunteered the past two years at the Schmieding Medical Education center in Springdale, AR as a group leader of a "Welcome to Medicare" presentation I designed.

I earned a bachelor's degree in Agricultural Economics in 1989 and a master's degree in Agronomy in 1992. While I attended school, my wife's reputation and demand as a fine cook was growing. We remodeled an old farm house on three acres, built a commercial kitchen, and operated a private event facility known as the North Forty Bed & Breakfast for 9 years. I helped with with various parts of the business, but as my role diminished I identified a longing to help people better understand what really was important to them - preparing for retirement.


I have expertise in Adult Education theory, earned a certificate online in Financial Planning from The University of Georgia in 2014,  earned a designation of Chartered Advisor of Senior Living (CASL) from the American College of Financial Services, and hold various types of insurance and investment licenses.
