Family: I have been married to Annie for 26 years. We have two children, Kody 24, and Kelli 21. And (2) amazing dogs Skeeter and Abbi!!
Education: I was raised in Rawlins and graduated from Rawlins High School in 1984, Annie, Kody, and Kelli are all RHS graduates as well! I continued my education at the University of Wyoming for an extended period of time, and hold a B.S. in Elementary Education. GO POKES!!!
Work: Experience I taught for CCSD#1 for ten years, teaching elementary and middle school. For the past 12 years I have been with Williams Natural Gas where I am currently a Supervisor of Operations.
CCSD #1 Involvement: I was elected to the CCSD#1 Board of Trustees in 2010, and have served on the CCHEC Board for that duration as well. I am currently on the Recreation Board also. I served as the RHS Booster Club president for 6 years.
Community: I actively coached baseball and basketball for a period of 15 years, and enjoyed that enough to come back and coach Girls rec league basketball for 3 more years. Rawlins has always been home to me and I love our community.
Hobbies: I absolutely love anything outdoors, from hunting and fishing to just spending time in the mountains.
Why I decided to become a Board Member: I have always had a passion for the education system, my father was a teacher in Rawlins as well. After I left teaching, I felt a need to still be involved at some level. This process of watching children progress through the system and being able to be part of their success is a huge reason to commit the time effort and energy to this board. We are blessed with a board that is dedicated and wants to see CCSD#1 reach amazing heights. I love kids, love the process, and love the employees of CCSD#1 that make a difference every single day in the lives of that precious resource-----------children.
