What’s the most important lesson you’ve learned in your career?
Every person has a talent and a contribution they can make. As a leader, you have to help them discover that talent and provide them the opportunities to make those contributions.
What are your hopes for the state or your community this year?
I would like to see people put factionalism behind them and embrace each other as part of a common community and a common family.

I live on a small farm and I love to work outside, grow things, and go for walks in the woods.
