As the Dean & Director of GEMS, I have the opportunity to lead this wonderful school each day. It has been a privilege to be a part of Graham Elementary & Middle School since its inception and planning prior to the 2010-2011 school year. I attended Taylor University for my undergraduate degree and then completed my M.S. in Student Affairs & Higher Education from Indiana State University. This is my 11th year with The Graham Family of Schools and 17th year in education administration and student development. I enjoy a good cup of coffee, reading, relaxing on Lake Erie, and spending time with my wife and three children.
