Some want to know the “what” of one’s expertise, interests, etc. Often times the more valuable answer lies in the person’s “Why?”“Why I do” is driven largely by two things: my love for this region, and my desire to serve my fellow man, hopefully in an uncommonly good way. If one were to ask “why” I have such love for this region, the answer lies in my upbringing. I have lived most of my life in rural America and feel rooted in these places. Getting back to my roots after 20 years of city life is a blessing.
One of my joys is serving the youth of my community. I am honored to share my knowledge and experience to make a difference in the lives of our young people through positive mentoring, education, and empowerment. These organizations play vital roles in nurturing the success of our youth, as well as strengthening our community now and into the future
