Family and community are the most important aspects of life for me. I have enjoyed and continue to enjoy working with the folks in and around Batesville, AR for many years now. My practice is centered on really getting to know each client and what their goals, dreams and concerns are and how I can help them address each of these. I have four grandchildren ages 5 - 13 and really enjoy spending my time with them. My wife, Ruby, and I enjoy spending our Spring and Summer on the lake with our Welsh-Corgie named Jackson. Also, sports has been something that has always been a big presence in my life through both participation and as a spectator.
