I retired from the Army after serving for twenty-two years and went to work flying EMS helicopters. After retiring in 2018, I returned to school in Jan. of 2019. I graduated from Bemidji State University in 2021 with my Bachelor’s Degree in social work. I enrolled in Indiana Wesleyan University and came to Stellher as part of my internship. Graduating in Dec. of 2022 with my Master’s Degree in social work and an internship experience that was nothing short of phenomenal, I readily accepted their invitation to continue my role as a clinician with the Stellher Human Services team.
Other areas of interest include working with adults in their struggles with PTSD, by co facilitating a faith-based PTSD support group outside of my work with Stellher and working with Veterans through our local Disabled American Veterans Chapter here in Bemidji.
Leisure activities include kayaking, hiking, bear hunting, spending time with my wife and two dogs doing pretty much anything outdoors.
