Kristi and I have been married for almost 22 years. We were high school sweethearts and got married while we were both attending Whitworth College. We have been blessed with two amazing kids (daughter, Rylee, who is 16 and son, Sam, who is 14). Kristi served for a number of years in the Adventures in Motherhood ministry at Life Center. She has a Masters in School Counseling and recently was part of the counseling department at Riverside Middle School.
I spent my 1st three years out of college working in public accounting and earning my CPA degree. For the past 18 years, I have been growing a financial planning practice where I get to work with both individuals and businesses.
Other organizations that Kristi and I are passionate about are: Project Six19; 2nd Harvest Bank (specifically Bite to Go); Whitworth University; Camp Stix and Spring of Hope International. I have really enjoyed my experience on the board and thankful that I get to witness the “how” and “why” in decision-making that goes on. I believe deeply that Life Center is a very special place and will cause great change to occur in our local community and the world. I am thankful for the place that Pastor Joe and the Life Center staff has brought us and I am excited to see where Pastor Michael and the Life Center staff is going to take us going forward.
