• I was born and raised in Decatur, IL.  I also attended Decatur Public Schools K-12.  After graduating, I joined the US Army, where I lived all over the United States and around the world.  After being Honorably discharged, I worked as an X-ray technologist for approximately 4 years full time.  An opportunity arose to join the construction trade, where I worked for approximately 7 years.  During that time, I discovered my true passion.  I wanted to give back the community, and help others become successful young adults.  My purpose is to help guide all students in becoming successful adults.  

    Like everyone, I place the importance of family first, but next is my students.
