I’ve lived in both Washington County and West Omaha, I’m married to Jill, who is a Navy veteran and a nurse serving daily at the VA Hospital, and I have twin 13-year-old boys who attend Kiewit Middle School.
I’ve been an attorney for about 25 years, with extensive service to the nonprofit sector, including Legal Aid of Nebraska, the Nonprofit Association of the Midlands and Autism Action Partnership. Currently, in addition to my consulting work for local nonprofits and small businesses, I am campaign manager for Kara Eastman’s U.S. Congressional campaign.
I am running for re-election to the Metropolitan Community College Board of Governors in District 3, which includes West Omaha and Washington County and am asking for your support.
I’ve been proud to serve as a board member during a time of incredible growth and opportunity at Metro. I am currently serving as vice chair of the board. The board is a tremendous group of leaders, and our partnership with MCC’s president is one of the most effective and successful among community colleges in the nation.
