As the Director of Career Services I assist students with career exploration. I use a variety of assessment tools to help them discover their gifts, talents, career interests and how their God given personality can be used to serve Him. I live in Waconia with my wife Karen, who is a Special Education Teacher, and our 3 children, Caleb, Sarah and Anna.
