I grew up on a small farm in Syracuse Utah, where I learned about faith, family and hard work. I was raised with Christian values; following the example of Jesus Christ has ingrained in me the principles of integrity, honesty, and a love for others.
After marrying my High School sweetheart, we embarked on raising a family. My wife and I have 3 children and 6 grandchildren which I adore. We have a strong family bond that will pull us through anything.
I started working straight out of High School and was navigating my way through college at Weber State University where I studied Criminal Justice. As I continued growing with the company that I worked for, I was introduced into leadership positions and I continued to grow with the company. While finding my way in the company, moved several times to create better running and more efficient stores. Learning to control spending to create profitability was the value that the company saw in me. I eventually found myself controlling 10 stores in Tri Cities, WA that stretched from there into Lewiston, ID. In 2012, I was offered an opportunity to purchase my own two stores in Moscow, ID and Pullman, WA. After much prayer and consideration, my wife and I decided to take the offer and we moved to Moscow where we have made our home. Since 2013, we have grown to 6 stores and continue to find success. The community welcomed us in with open arms and we have felt so loved here.
