This year, I begin my term as President-Elect of USA-Kansas.  As President, it was nothing short of a historical year, thanks to Covid-19.  My day job finds me as Principal of Discovery Intermediate School in Goddard Public Schools.  I'm beginning my 11th year in this position, and it's my 23rd year as a Goddard educator and administrator.

I'm a graduate of FHSU, with my degree in elementary education, and I received my master's degree in administration from Baker University.  Currently, I'm finishing my Superintendent's certification through FHSU.

On a personal note, I've been married to Kerrie for 24 years.  We have three daughters; Natalie, Morgan, and McKenna.  In my spare time, I love to golf, hunt, fish, and camp.
