I am the Animal Enforcement Manager for Rowan County Animal Services and have been employed in this department since 1996. My goal was to bring more professionalism and training to our officers in Animal Enforcement to better serve the citizens of Rowan County. I am a firm believer that one cannot get enough training(especially regarding animal cruelty) and to make sure our officers receive as much training as offered throughout the year.
I have received numerous certificates/certifications earned throughout my career and in 1997, received the Susan Gloeckler Memorial Award presented by the Rowan County Humane Society for outstanding contributions to animal welfare, Rowan County Employee of the month for dedicated service and outstanding contributions to Rowan County in 2001 and the Ralph Ketner Productivity Award for the “Cleaning of County Shelter by State Inmates in 2000-2001.
I have served on the Board of Directors for the NCARCA since 1997 and presently serving my second term as Vice-President. I am honored to serve on this board and assist in enhancing the development of our members through effective training and leadership.
I reside in Salisbury, NC with my wife Rhonda, son Seth and daughter Taylor. We also have 2 Great Pyrenees, a Siberian Husky and a Bischon mix as members of the family
