So that tells you what I am but really doesn’t answer the question who I am!
I am someone who truly feels blessed beyond measure in so many ways. I have been married to the love of my life Wendy for 27 years and we are blessed with two wonderful children Caitlin and Jackson. Much if not all of my success has come from the support of my wife I could not have made it without her.
I am also someone who wakes up every day and is excited about being able to use the gifts and talents that I have been given to serve others. I truly feel I am exactly where I am supposed to be. I am blessed to be surrounded by people who believe what I believe and they understand a simple concept of why we do it. We believe in what I call the rub effect. Each and every day we rub against numerous people and the question is what impact will that will have. We believe that every opportunity is a chance to make a difference in some small way. Maybe not immediate maybe somewhere down the road of life.
I believe in some small way we are changing the world. Every day we are blessed with opportunities to make this world a better place. We try one person at a time one smile at a time.
Lastly, I realize to those that much is given much is expected. I could have never imagined that what I do would open the doors of opportunity to support many organizations in our communities that are working so hard to help others. I want everyone to know that when they come to see us they are supporting the community as a whole.
