What are your goals for your community involvement? The priority is finding the best ways to serve as many people in our local communities as possible.

What's your biggest passion? Family. From my home life to my work life, I am centered around family. I am fortunate to be in a family business and work with my dad every day and have a mom and a husband who always support me. And our world revolves around our two sons, Jackson and Noah.
