After graduating from Rochester Institute of Technology, Don found a home in teaching and coaching hockey. After marrying Diane Bunker and starting a family in Northern New York, it became apparent that he would not be making a career move to joins SHADS in a full time capacity. He opted to join in a very limited sales position. After retiring from 33 years of teaching in 2001, joining SHADS part time was a welcome transition. It has provided interaction with many wonderful co-workers and clients across a wide spectrum of industries. Don continues to enjoy working for SHADS with its ever changing experiences.
