Paul was introduced to the mobility industry in 1984 when he was offered a position with Haveco in Harrisburg PA. He attended an ADED conference in South Bend, Indiana before his first day of work. The best part of the conference came after Paul assisted BraunAbility with driving vehicles back to their headquarters an hour and a half away, and getting a personal tour of the Braun Corporation. Paul gained eight years of experience with Haveco before moving to Kentucky to start a similar business in Louisville. Four years later, Paul was offered a position as a Rehab Products Consultant, with Superior Van & Mobility, the position he still holds today. He still loves helping and showing people with a disability get back on the road again. Paul is a strong competitor, whether it is on the marathon course in his racing chair, or just competing in the game of life as a Rehab Products Consultant.
