3 years at Pheasants Ridge & 5 years as Owner
My wife Amanda & I are the owners of Pheasants Ridge & we take great pride in being part of an environment for our clients & team only possible through local & engaged ownership.
Assisting residents with living arrangements, I appreciate welcoming new residents to the Pheasants Ridge family. I enjoy helping our residents with unique needs through apartment modifications, delivery of services, & coordination with county case managers or other appointed representatives.
I Graduated from MSU Mankato with a Bachelor's of Science in Economics, & Master’s degree in Business Administration. I feel at my best when involved in providing service. I enjoy interacting with others, being part of a team, & the gratification when someone’s life improves as a result of my efforts.
I am an avid outdoorsman & am lucky to have several memories with loved ones in hunting blinds, fishing boats, & at campsites. Amanda & I thoroughly enjoy watching our children grow & participate in their school & sport events. I have taken pleasure in coaching my daughter’s softball team the past few years.
