About myself: Raised in Hillsdale County, Michigan, the essence of entrepreneurship was deeply ingrained in my family's ethos. My family of entrepreneurs instilled in me the significance of diligence and commitment. After earning my degree from Lincoln Christian University in Illinois, I decided to return to my Michigan roots with my wife, Kaitlynn. Subsequently, I assumed leadership at the Ridge Tefft State Farm office in Charlotte, now a cornerstone in the community. With my entrepreneurial background, I'm well-equipped to guide our team in delivering unmatched service to our Good Neighbors in Eaton County and beyond. Outside of work, I cherish time spent fishing and hiking with my wife and our adorable dogs. We are also licensed in Indiana and Ohio!
