What made you decide to open a Senior Helpers location in your community? Why not something else?

We saw the need for care for the elderly.  With our experience hiring PCA's for our son & seeing how the good PCA's can make a difference in his life, we wanted to be a part of those same experiences on a larger scale with the seniors in our community.

What excites you most about opening your Senior Helpers business?

Having the opportunity to make a different in so many people's lives was something that brought me excitement. 

What are you passionate about?

I am passionate about the opportunity to help others.

Tell us a little about your family (Married? Kids? Pets?) and/or what accomplishments are you most proud of?

I am 56 years old and have been married to my beautiful bride Laurie for almost 25 years. We have 3 children. Megan who is 22 is a rock star employee, Erin is 19 & Paul the third who will be 17 March 2023.) We have a rescue dog named Leo who just turned 2. Individual accomplishment: I bowled a 300 Jan-13-22.

What do you enjoy doing during your spare time?

I enjoy the Special Olympics events with our son Paul. I like to bowl, and we are very involved in our church.

Do you volunteer in your community or are there any special charities or social causes that are meaningful to you? If so, please share where and why?

Special Olympics is #1. My son is an athlete in a myriad of events & they can always use any extra funding!

Is there any additional information you would like included on your Meet the Office Page?

Year 2 of Senior Helpers is going better than year 1 and I am looking forward to what the rest of 2023 will bring us!
