Professional Bio

I spent 20+ years active duty in the U. S. Marine Corps retiring as a Gunnery Sergeant. I currently live in Casa Grande, AZ with my wife, Mary. I have three kids-son Caleb (who is an RN and just completed his BSN and is going back to school for his MSN program at Pensacola Christian College). My oldest daughter, Ashley, lives in Phoenix with her husband, Garth, their two kids, Ashley’s youngest daughter and son and her oldest son and daughter live in Salt Lake City, UT with their dad. My youngest daughter, Hannah, is married and lives in the Coolidge with her husband, Ben (who jut joined the Army and is going to Bootcamp on August 2nd) and my newest grandson, James.
I was an Assisted Living Facility Manager in AZ from 2002 to 2019 and been involved in Healthcare since 1989 when my wife and I started caring for her grandmother while I was on Recruiting Duty in Denver Colorado. I have taught at the Arizona Medical Training Institute (formerly the RSAA TRAINING Institute) from 2003 to 2009 training Caregivers and Assisted Living Facility Managers. I am currently an adjunct professor at Dubuque University teaching Health Care and Business classes and an admissions counselor at the Brookline College.
I am very involved in the community through the Young Marines, VFW, American Legion, Marine Corps League, DAV, and Desert Gateway Baptist church. Besides being very involved in the community, I enjoy spending time with my family and I am a professional Photographer. Caleb is a game-a-holic and collects Comics, which keeps my busy when he is home from college. The whole family are avid readers and enjoy board games and various hobbies. One unique hobby that I have is Leather Crafting. I make wallets, belts, Saddles, and various other things out of leather.
