Away from the office, I enjoy spending time with my wife, Leslie, and our four sons, Jackson, Lincoln, Carter, and Tyler. I coach youth sports and serve on my local school board. Coaching youth sports gives me the opportunity to meet my sons’ friends and instill the values of integrity, humility, accountability, and respect in a fun-filled, active environment. These values match the values Foster Group strives to uphold.
