Why are you volunteering your time on the Baptist Health Foundation Hardin Board? In my law practice, I often represent people who need significant medical treatment. Whether it’s a client who has been seriously injured in an automobile accident or one who needs to create an estate plan, these experiences have reinforced to me the importance of high-quality healthcare.

Why is giving back important to you - both in LaRue County and in the region? I feel that each one of us should give back as much as we can, as often as we can, in as many ways as we can.

How would you describe gratitude and what are you most grateful for? Gratitude means an appreciation for what you have. I’m most grateful for a loving, supportive family, good health, and the opportunity to do my part in making the world a better place for the people around me.
