Brent is passionate about serving and investing in others and believes that continual learning, focused training, and openness to education are critical components to anyone’s overall health and success. He brings 28 years of business experience, from entry-level to the upper echelons of management. Brent’s diverse experience includes serving in nonprofit organizations and for-profit businesses of various sizes. Profit is not everything, but he admits, it certainly doesn’t hurt!

In his free time, Brent enjoys hanging out and playing with his two kids, Macaela and Landon, reading, landscaping, boating, traveling, watching movies and TV shows, and walking his dog, Toby. He has made several trips to Nakuru, Kenya to serve dozens of families that have found themselves living in and surviving on the local landfill. He has served in an organization that sponsors and provides children an opportunity to escape that landfill environment by attending a faith-based boarding school in a neighboring town. Brent hopes to continue this mission work in the future.
