Assistant Director-Field Training and Development
I graduated from Indiana University - Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) with a BA in Organization Communications - Training and Development. I've held many positions in the funeral service industry over the years, with a focus on sales and sales management.
I live in Indianapolis and enjoy spending time with my wife Jamie, our children Blake, Brooke, Taylor and Andrew and my large extended family. I also love everything about the beach, from sand to water sports. When home, I enjoy landscaping, DIY projects and fitness activities.
I joined Homesteaders because of the company's innovation and reputation for quality service. At the same time, every Homesteaders employee I've met has integrity and character. I'm honored to be part of the team.
Years ago, I helped a family make preneed arrangements for their patriarch. After the service, his wife gave me a hug and said, “We couldn't have done it without you. Thank you.” At that moment, I knew I was doing good for families and it was helping people. I look forward to sharing what I’ve learned through years of experience in funeral service to help funeral professionals develop the skills they need to serve even more families.
