I’m a Wisconsin native who loves the peace and beauty of the Northwoods. I spend free time traveling with my family, hiking, and occasionally fishing or hunting. I’m trying to become a relatively skillful cross-country skier. I graduated from UW-Stevens Point with a degree in forest management in 2000.  

What I like about Oneida & Vilas Counties: I love the large blocks of forest which are dotted with beautiful lakes and swamps. Foresters manage forests by mimicking nature. I get to steer forests to help keep them healthy while providing wildlife habitat and diverse recreational opportunities. I enjoy working on public lands, assisting private landowners, and working with loggers to sustainably manage forests.
