As Alderman at Large, I was elected to serve the citizens of Sterling, Illinois, and that is what I will do! 

I was born and raised in Sterling, graduating from Sterling High School in 1978. 

I served in the US Army Reserve for 35 years with tours in Afghanistan, Iraq and the Pentagon.

I have earned a Master's Degree in Public Administration and Business Administration, and I continue to learn something new everyday. 

My education and experiences in municipal government, and life, provide me the ability to do everything that needs to be done to make our city great.

I am a member of St. Mary's church and volunteer in the community as much as I possibly can. I encourage everyone to become a member of a faith based church in our community, and to volunteer when your time allows you to. Everyone's help in making our community the community that you want it to be will make it happen!
