Personal Highlights

I grew up in a small town called Rockton here in IL. I have lived in South Beloit for the past twelve years.

Brian and I are engaged we have a son named Dallas who is twelve and a son named Chase that is twenty-six.  We also have a dog and three cats. I rescue cats whenever I can.

I graduated from Hononegah High School in 1983. I took several courses at Rock Valley College.
My family and I love to be outside we swim, go for bike rides, we love to fish, build warm fires and have friends over. We go to car shows. I enjoy my Bible studies with my women’s group at Central Christian Church. We also volunteer at the food pantry at our local churches whenever possible.

I started working in the Restaurant business when I was fourteen years old. My mom was a single mother and it allowed us to see her while we worked. I enjoyed meeting new people and getting to know the regulars. It was almost like a family. I could never sit at a desk I like being busy and learning new things. I like that every day is different.

Personal Highlights

When I am not with my “work family”, I enjoy being a father to my three teenage boys sons. Whether we are exploring the outdoors, hanging out at our bonfire, swimming, or playing video games, we have good time being together.

Personal Highlights

When not working, I like to spend as much time with my three children and volunteering at the Natural Land Institution of Illinois. I enjoy listening to music, reading books and going to the gym. I’m very self-driven and look up to Tony Robbins and Warren Buffett.
