I grew up outside of Shawano, WI and worked nearby on a relative’s dairy farm. This time outdoors influenced my decision to earn a degree in Forest Management at UW-Stevens Point. In my free time, I enjoy hunting, fishing, playing hockey, golfing, working around my house, and spending time with family. I feel fortunate my career takes me into the woods.  

What I like about Ashland County: The Northwoods of Wisconsin is a great place to live, work, and play. It supports a wide variety of forest types, abundant wildlife, and endless recreational opportunities for all ages.
