Accomplishments
I am part of an exciting Leadership Team focusing on our Team Members. We have mentored and supported our Team Members with the Mid-States Team Experience. As part of the Human Resources Team, we’ve taught, learned, and laughed from orientation to a successful Team Member. Personally, I’m proud to be part of the Mid-States Family.

Extracurricular
The Saint Bernadette Parish in Rockford is a passion. Growing up, I attended St. Bernadette’s for grade school. Now, I’m honored to attend mass with my mother every Sunday.

Off the Clock
Brewers, Bacon and Beer. We attend, according to my beautiful wife Lisa, too many games. However, more important, our daughters Rebecca and Meghan. Meghan’s getting married to Enzo in October. Becca will be teaching first grade in Johnson Creek this year.

Secret Life
I have been under contract with the WWE. Yes, World Wrestling Entertainment. Actually, twice!! OK, I admit I wasn’t a wrestler, I was a seat filler at two televised events.

I love old movies. The best are black and white Sci-Fis from the 40s and 50s.

Science Fiction/Wrestling… maybe there’s a connection.

Accomplishments
Back in 2015, I achieved my PHR certification! I spent several months in a local SHRM study group learning the basics and finally passed! Now to maintain the certification and test for my SPHR.

Extracurricular
I’m an active volunteer at the local animal shelter in Janesville with my daughter. We both have a love for animals and enjoy participating in local events to help raise money for the shelter.

Off the Clock
When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my two German Shepherds and my family… some say I love my dogs more than my family! I also spend a lot of time vacuuming up dog hair because these dogs love to shed! I also spend a lot of time with my family camping, hiking and simply being outdoors. I have a wonderful husband who I’ve been married to roughly four years now. One teenage daughter and a 2-year-old son.

Secret Life
Most don’t know it, but I’m the youngest out of 3 kids and I’m going grey faster than my two older siblings.

Accomplishments
My children are my greatest accomplishment. I was blessed with an amazing son, and an incredible daughter. Both are in college.

Extracurricular
I am the leader of my pack which includes two kids, a dog, and three cats. I am always busy and never alone. Motorcycle rides with my best friend. It always ends up being a picnic with tacos.

Off the Clock
I love cooking, gardening, and taking trips to the Northern Woods. I love all types of music, but my favorite would be the 80s! I love watching most movies, except horror films. My three favorite holidays are Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.

Secret Life
Something most people would not know about me is when I was one-month-old, my mother and I boarded a plane and off we went to live in South Korea for the next eight months. No, I don’t speak Korean, hehehe :)
