A little about Rich
I’m married to my wonderful wife, Erin, and we have three boys ages 16, 13, and 10. As a family, we enjoy traveling and outside activities. We are also busy with our boys’ extracurricular activities. Our 16 year old is in the high school band, our 13 year old plays travel baseball, and our 10 year old plays tackle football. My personal hobbies include practicing and competing in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, enjoying a good movie, and reading books across various genres and subjects.
I served in the U.S. Coast Guard and I’m a 100% P&T disabled American Veteran. After my honorable discharge, I pursued a law enforcement career and served my community for over 28 years. While working and helping raise a family, I earned degrees at the undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral levels in business, leadership, and education.
As a lifelong learner, I believe in empowering others through knowledge. This belief motivates me to help others, especially veterans for whom I have deep admiration.
