I have enjoyed working at New Hope of Indiana for several decades. I began working at New Hope in early 1979 which means I have shared about 62% of my life with New Hope and with the people here. In my younger years, I was more interested in social concerns and social equity. Working in typical business jobs did not seem appealing then and it still does not today. Currently, I am one of thirteen New Hope Behavior Consultants. This entails a lot! Just a few of the many essential skills are being a good teacher and a listener.

In my personal life, I have many long-term interests: my wife, Betsy, who I met at New Hope, and our two sons; riding my bike and practicing yoga with my favorite yoga teacher; serving people good food; talking to our poodle, Ivy, and knowing she understands me; music; going back to the gym. Our dog, Ivy, has trained us to spoil her. She has her own couch with several matching pillows. We also have a big, orange cat named Butler. Ivy and Butler cooperate. They must have good role models! One of our sons is a good Fraternity brother and the other is good musician.

If there were one thing I could help the individuals I serve communicate, it’s that the want the same life as everyone else on earth: friendships; knowing they’re important; being someone to care about; knowing that someone cares about them; feeling useful. New Hope is continually changing and inspiring me in my work, and it often has me asking, “What’s next?”
