Profile

 

  1. Tell us a little bit about yourself. Where do you work? What do you do for fun?
    Work: Business Development Officer for SAFE Credit Union
    Fun: Spending time with my family, hiking, watching and playing sports, cooking, and reading
     
  2. What motivated you to join United Way’s Young Leaders Society?
    I was looking for a group of other local young leaders that had the same values, desire and commitment to our local community that I had. United Way was already invested in our local community with an emphasis on financial education.
     
  3. What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
    The golden rule – treat others how you would want to be treated.
     
  4. What would you say to other young professionals looking to get involved in the community?
    Find something that excites you and that you can be committed to. It’s hard to not show up and be present when you have those two pieces.
     
  5. If you could change one thing about our community, what would it be and why?
    Teaching financial literacy in the schools. I’ve found most people inherit their money habits from their parents or guardians, unless otherwise talked about and discussed.
     
  6. Favorite Book and TV Show:
    Favorite Book – As a Man Thinketh by James Allen; as a family, our favorite family TV show is Big Brother! My wife and I are also big Walking Dead fans.
     
  7. Little known fact:
    I have two boys who were born on the same day, and they are not twins!
