What spare time? I get the privilege of watching my three kids play sports year around. We believe strongly in team sports and how it can prepare them to be future leaders. As a local business owner, I also like to network and learn about area businesses.
I’m all about doing something bigger than myself and working with people to accomplish something super special. Being part of compassion delivered was a no-brainer because I can positively engage people who are becoming hopeless. Terminal illnesses effect every family and we want to be there to educate, equip, and inspire people to get better through proper nutrition.
One of my favorite questions. My HERO is my late Grandma Steele. She raised me when she was in her own retirement and gave me so much love and support anyone could ask for. I witnessed her religious beliefs and how she continuously gave to her community.
I consider myself to be somewhat of a professional SKEEBALL player.
