I’m eager to take the challenge of being selected as the first Director of EPIC Charities. Known for being focused, competitive, and a leader, I am committed to growing the non-profits I serve while maintaining the mission of helping others. At little about me, three things on my bucket list are more travel adventures with my family, someday starting my own business, and visiting all National Parks. I love a good board game night with friends and spending time in the great outdoors. At EPIC Charities, I look forward to making a positive impact in the non-profit space in the communities we serve.
Starting at EPIC Charities in July of 2023, I grew up in Minot, ND, and hold a Public Relations degree from Minot State University. Previously, I served as the Executive Director at the American Red Cross, gaining valuable non-profit experience. Before my time at the Red Cross, I held various roles with the Boy Scouts of America. Now, at EPIC Charities, I collaborate with the board and volunteers to drive the organization’s mission. Beyond work, I enjoy camping, hiking, canoeing, board games, and quality time with my wife and three kids. EPIC Charities’ noble endeavors and meaningful community impact are my favorite aspects of the organization.
