Personal

One of the things that attracted me to Foster Group was their values of Integrity, Humility, Accountability, Respect, Excellence and Wisdom.  It is a blessing to be part of an organization that not only states these as their values, but lives by them on a daily basis.

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with family and friends.  My three kids keep me busy running them around to different activities and sporting events.  Most weekends, you will find me at a softball field or basketball court.  When we do have free weekends in the summer, we like to spend time skiing and boating in Harpers Ferry, Iowa, with family.

In the last two years, we have become involved with AHeinz57 Pet Rescue and Transport.  We enjoy being able to save dogs by fostering them until they are adopted into their forever homes.
