About me

Who I am at and outside of work

My family includes…

Grayson (my five-year-old son) and my parents, Brenda and Chuck.

I'm passionate about…

the outdoors - I love to hunt, fish, and spend time with friends and family on the lake!

In my free time you'll probably find me…

coaching T-ball and soccer on my son's teams.

My greatest blessing is…

my personal relationship with The Lord.


I am very blessed to work for an organization that allows me to help others.

How we make a difference

We feel it’s important to support the communities we serve because…

without the community, our business doesn't exist. We find it's important to make our impact at the local level.

We feel strongly about supporting our communities at a local level. One way we're able to make a positive impact is through Modern Woodmen activities and programs. We especially enjoy:

Matching Fund projects to raise money for those in need.

Our philosophy on volunteering is…

it's way more fulfilling to give than it is to receive. We get so much more than we give when we help our communities and our families.

We’re most proud of…

volunteering alongside Modern Woodmen members and the impact we have made in the state of Arkansas. Last year, we put over one million dollars into our great state!
