I grew up in Northwest Illinois. I was active in sports and anything outdoors. After moving to South Dakota to play football at SDSU, I was lucky enough to meet my wife, Jill. We now live in Pierre and have two daughters who have blessed our lives. We continue to enjoy the outdoors as time allows as well as all the activities they are involved in. Helping manage Rising Hope Counseling with my wife, Jill, has become one of the greatest journey’s and blessings in our life. We are grateful for the incredible employees we currently have as well as the future it holds.
