My family and I feel blessed to make Willard our Home. Our family's passion is to positively impact the lives of others, I grew up in Germany, as a son of missionaries. My wife, Suzanne and I met in Fayette, MO in the 8th grade and we've been best friends ever since. We have a son, Leyton, and two daughters, Eva and Darci. Prior to Willard, I served as the Superintendent of Smithton R-VI. Prior to my role as Superintendent, I was principal of Smithville Middle School for 4 years. I've also had experiences at Thomas Jefferson Middle School and Mexico School District. I hold my Doctorate in Educational Leadership from St. Louis University, Educational Specialist Degree from William Woods University, and Masters and Bachelors degrees from Truman State University. In addition, I have taught graduate courses for William Woods University since 2009. I enjoy family time, zoos, learning, officiating, and walking.
