    I grew up in St. John Washington, and lived two miles south of Pine City with my father, mother, and sister; Mike, Dixie, and Kasey. From this I gained the much-needed perspective of living in a farming community. Basketball and the inherent nuances of leadership in environments of intensity, rising from the basketball experience, became a significant life passion.I played college basketball at Walla Walla Community College. I then attained a BS in Nursing at the Intercollegiate Center for Nursing Education through Eastern Washington University, and later earned a MS in Nursing from Gonzaga University. I worked at Whitman Medical Group in Colfax Washington as a Nurse Practitioner for twelve years until 2010 when my passion lead me to the Athletic Director position at the Liberty School District. I will continue to work as a NP in the Spokane Valley one day a week. I am also pursuing my PhD in Leadership Studies at Gonzaga University. I attribute my own love for people, landscape, and the divine possibility of the human heart to my wife and children, Cheri, Match, Chase, and Maisie. My wife Cheri is a bright shining star in the sky of loving and purposeful wives. My children are gifts from God, and with their joy they heal the world.
