Married to Terri (BSN, RN, MAOA) since 1984. We have two grown children, Rachel and Mary.
I was raised in a small town not unlike Hillsboro where my grandfather owned the local grain elevator. Thanks to much sacrifice by my parents, I was able to go on a number of international trips while in high school. I’ve tried to be a global citizen ever since.
Among other things, my wife and I enjoy traveling, creating/caring for native prairie gardens, putting puzzles together, and our Mini-Schnauzer Joey.
