I was born and raised in Atchison, and I love my community! I’m happily married to my wife Nikki, and together we have two amazing kids, Marley and Patrick. I love to cook and spend time with family, traveling, and following the Royals, Jayhawks, Chiefs, and Gorillas!
I graduated from Maur Hill Prep School right here in Atchison and then went on to complete my Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work at Pittsburg State University, GO-RILLAS! After a short stint in child protection services, I went on to the University of Kansas, where I earned my Master’s Degree in Social Work to work in community mental health as a therapist and an administrator here in Atchison. I have met many amazing people that are incredibly resilient and am grateful to be included in their treatment!
I joined ACHC in July of 2017 as the Executive Director, and I am extremely grateful to be a part of this amazing group of people. ACHC is going to make an everlasting change in Atchison County and the surrounding areas. We care about our patients and want to see everyone achieve a high quality of life.
