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.

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.
