A lifelong resident of the Fox Valley, I was born in Neenah, grew up in Larsen, and graduated from Winneconne High School. I currently work at Pierce Manufacturing Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company, as the Director of Human Resources. I’ve previously worked in the papermaking, manufacturing, and aviation industries.
I am honored to have served on active duty and in the reserves of the U.S. Air Force in European and stateside assignments. I am currently a thirty year member of the Congressionally chartered Civil Air Patrol, U.S. Air Force Auxiliary. In addition, I volunteer with Junior Achievement; belong to the American Legion; and serve as an AWANA youth leader at Appleton Alliance Church.
My formal education includes a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh and a Master of Science (MS) degree from Marian University. Additionally, I’ve completed executive leadership programs at Cornell University, Northwestern University, and the Center for Creative Leadership, and am a certified executive coach.
I, along with my wife and two daughters, reside in Grand Chute.
