About me

Neither of my parents went to college.  My dad was a maintenance man and farmer.  My mother worked in a bank.  My parents worked hard all day at work, and then even harder at home.  They also taught me that regular people sometimes need help.

I grew up in barns and fields, not club houses and swimming pools.  I still know the importance of hard work, and I appreciate people who work hard for their families.  If your ability to work for your family has been taken away by someone else's dangerous action, I'll work hard to help you through the tough times. Together, we'll keep your family moving forward.
