Why have you chosen to serve on the AACS Board of Directors?
I love the school, all three of my kids graduated from the school after attending 13 years (K-12), and my grandson is now attending the school. AACS has had a tremendous impact on my family, through the education that has been provided from amazing godly teachers & staff, the community of parents, and the focus on partnering with parents to support my children with their walk with Christ. AACS has given so much to me, and I hope I can offer my time, treasure, and talents on the board to continue the great work of AACS into the future.
What do you do when you're not at AACS?
I work with Chick-fil-A in the Annapolis area, serving my team and guests. I have been with Chick-fil-A since 1986, becoming the owner in 1992, I love what I do! I attend Bay Area Community Church and serve on the finance team there and I love time with my family, being a grandparent is amazing!

Describe a perfect Saturday morning.
Probably sleeping in a little later, having breakfast with my grand babies. It is one of the busier days for my restaurants so I like to visit one of them for a while. I may work on a project, I love home improvement, and we try to have family dinner, since everyone is so busy throughout the week.
What's one of your favorite Bible passages and why?
Proverbs 4:23 “Above all else, guard your heart for it is the well spring of life”. It reminds me of how I need to keep a check on my heart, and I need to keep close to Jesus to do this.
