I moved to Republic in 1987 from Moberly, MO. I graduated from Republic High School in 1998, and almost immediately after graduation I left for basic training. After 3 deployments to Iraq, I am now nearing the end of my military career. I have received several accommodations while serving as a junior enlisted soldier, team leader, squad leader, convoy commander, and Mobility Sergeant.
I have a 14-year-old daughter that attends Republic High School and is very active in sports. I love getting to watch her do the things she truly enjoys.
In the past year, I have opened two businesses, a mobile coffee trailer, Sub 24, and STAT Truck & Trailer Repair in Billings. In my free time, I enjoy running. I am an ultra-runner (anything over 26.2 miles), and love getting to travel all over pushing the limits of my mind and body. My furthest completed distance to date is 100 miles that took about 40 hours to complete in a sub 0-degree snowstorm.
I have discovered over the years that some of the biggest differences that we can make are at the local government level. As I near the end of my military career I look forward to my future public service with the City of Republic.
