Ken has lived most of his adult life feeling as though he’s living in a sorority, heading a household of a wife, and (mostly) girls (6). Naturally introverted, and having grown up in a reserved family environment, Ken has had to learn to communicate his feelings to survive at home.
An engineer by training and technical writer by trade, Ken has led a successful career in the industry. However, his life experience within the context of his marriage, and through parenting special needs and adoptive children, has provided him a passion for helping others in the community to build thriving relationships within difficult circumstances.
Ken is the proud father of nine kids and counts it a blessing to be called “Paw-Paw” by his growing bevy of grandkids.
A lifelong outdoors enthusiast, Ken has scaled multiple mountain peaks and paddled many a mile in a canoe. He finds going on runs with his wife, Laura, to be a great way to connect amidst all of life’s craziness.
