I have been a resident of the Warsaw and Winona Lake, Indiana area for over 30 years. The last 16 of those years has been spent as a small businessman and insurance professional helping people in those communities and the surrounding areas of Kosciusko County and Northern Indiana with their health insurance needs.
My wife, Cathy, and I have been married almost 30 years. She is a graduate of Grace College and Ball State University. She has worked in the community for the last 25 years as a School Psychologist for Warsaw Community Schools. Recently, the Indiana Association of School Psychologists named her as the 2015-2016 School Psychologist of the Year.
Cathy and I have two children who we feel blessed to have been able to raise in the Warsaw and Winona Lake communities. Both of our children attended Warsaw Community Schools and graduated from Warsaw Community High School. Our son went on to graduate from Valparaiso University and now teaches in Seoul, South Korea. He teaches at a private elementary school for Korean students who are advanced enough in their language studies to take most of their education in English. Our daughter graduated from St. Louis College of Pharmacy with her Doctor of Pharmacy degree. She is a staff pharmacist at a hospital in the St. Louis, Missouri area where she had worked for four years as a pharmacy technician during her studies.
Community service and giving back to the community is important to me. In the past, I served nine years on the board of the Kosciusko County Chapter of the American Red Cross. I have been a member of the Kiwanis Club of Warsaw, Indiana for almost 20 years. Currently, I serve as the President-Elect of the club.
I am a graduate of Calvary Bible College in Kansas City, Missouri and Grace Theological Seminary in Winona Lake, Indiana. Cathy and I very much enjoy and feel blessed by the church family we have found in Warsaw.
