Hello, Thank you for making me part of the First United Methodist Church family! I am honored to be part of the team, and look forward to meeting the church community.
I have lived in the Wenatchee area for 8 years, but am a transplant. I was born in Billings, MT and was raised in Lincoln, NE (Go Big Red!) where much of my extended family still lives. I moved to Snohomish, WA where I attended high school before moving to Spokane, WA where I attended college at Eastern Washington University. I graduated with my bachelors degree in English, with emphasis in Technical Communications and Graphic Design. I met my lovely wife, Ami Collins, while in college. Ami is from Chelan and after college I moved with her back to the Wenatchee Valley. I have fallen in love with this area because of the vast array of outdoor activities, the wonderful people, and the beautiful valley! I am proud to call Wenatchee my home.
My wife and I have 3 wonderful children: Riley (9), Piper (7), and Lucas (3). They are all very smart and kind kids that always keep me on my toes! Riley is a great dancer and is very passionate about performance. Piper is beautiful, creative, and an excellent artist. Lucas is energetic, smart, and very handsome. My wife, Ami, is one of the best speech therapist in Washington State and takes a personal interest in seeing her students succeed! Ami is a great mother to our children and a caring and supportive wife.
I have a variety of hobbies and enjoy almost all outdoor activities. I am an avid snowboarder, fisherman, and am constantly working on fixing my golf slice. I am a very active person, so I may run into you on the trail, on the water, or in the hills.
Thanks for making me part of the team.
