I have been in the lawn care industry over 20 years. I like helping people with the care of their property, being outside, and the science of our industry. My favorite thing about my job is helping people fix the issues they are having with their lawn, trees, and shrubs. The words of wisdom I most relate to, is “If you want things you have never had before, then you have to do things that you have never done before.”
My favorite season is Spring when everything comes to life with the blooms, leaves, and grass turning green after being dormant all winter.
During my down time, I love spending time with my family and dogs, kayaking, gardening, fishing, and hunting. A favorite thing to do, and what I think everyone should do at least once in their lifetime here in Indiana, is to head to Deer Creek Park and watch eagles catch fish out of the water. They are powerful, majestic, and amazing birds and to see them in their natural habitat is inspiring.
I am passionate about causes that support and enrich our community. “We Care” is a program started in my hometown that helps clothe children. My grandmother started the charity over 30 years ago and it is still going strong. One hundred percent of all the proceeds from the organization go to the children. Additionally, you may find me and my dogs going into the homeless encampments in the inner city to provide new, clean socks for the homeless. New socks not only feel comfortable and warm to the homeless, but they also help ward off several health problems. Often, the homeless may receive food items in donations, but rarely do they receive new socks.
