John grew up in Alna, a little town near the coast. He also attended UMF, where he met Rhonda, then went on to get his M.S.W. degree. He has worked for over ten years with "at risk youth" in a variety of capacities. During that time he participated in several week long wilderness trips with them. John enjoys fishing, archery hunting, hiking, kayaking, camping, and anything else about the outdoors.
Their two girls, Lydia (age 5) and Elizabeth (age 3), enjoy watching their favorite TV shows (Arthur and Clifford), riding in their Barbie Jeep, eating anything covered in chocolate, and swimming.
