Life Work – Fiore Companies

I was employed by The Fiore Companies for over 25 years.  Initially hired as Treasurer, I became Vice President of Operations, and ultimately served as its Executive Vice President. I know this length of tenure is almost unheard of these days, so I feel very fortunate. My responsibilities include strategic planning, financing, business development and public relations. I’ve also led the development efforts for the following projects:

Madison Central Library

Evensong Spa

I am very proud to have been part of this project… I always try to find deeper meaning in my work, and developing this spa gave me the chance to create a place that was nourishing to the body and spirits of our guests there.

I think Evensong is the best spa in Wisconsin – great facilities in a beautiful natural setting. . . It is distinguished by its indoor labyrinth – a contemplative tool for personal and spiritual transformation. And walking a labyrinth serves as a physical metaphor for a spiritual journey to the center of the Self and back out into the world.
