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 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.
