Childhood Ambition

Veterinarian – and to drive a lemon-lime Trans Am!

First Job

As an 11-year-old I would get on a school bus at 7am in the summer and head to the fields to pick strawberries. We were paid in cash every time you finished filling a flat. I loved the immediate reward for a job well done and the chance to be outside all day!

I work best…

When I am surrounding by engaged individuals that trust each other and are working towards the same goals

Hero

My grandfather, he landed on D-Day and fought through to the Battle of the Bulge. He returned home and worked hard to create for his family a stable environment where his sons could excel. He was truly a member of the Greatest Generation.

Proudest Accomplishment

Meeting my wife and bringing up two amazingly independent children in Northfield, MN

Perfect Day

A hot cup of coffee on the screened-in porch, a walk with the dogs, a day on the dock with a good book, a slow-putter around the lake on the boat, a long lazy dinner with friends, ending with a nightcap back on the screened-in porch.
