Pete and his wife, Suzanne, are long-time Bexley residents. They have five children and are both quite active in their community. Pete currently serves as Risk Manager for the Columbus Chapter of CISV USA and has been a youth lacrosse coach for over 10 years.

My summer as a Park Ranger cultivated my love of being outdoors and initiated my interest in becoming a servant to others. My wife and I have 5 children and we create family vacations that almost always revolve around some kind of outdoor activity. We try to get to the mountains of the western US as often as possible.

As our kids grew, I became a youth lacrosse coach and have been involved in coaching all three of our boys. The great reward in coaching has been watching our teams mature and develop over the years. Many of my former players are well into their careers now and it is always great to see them and learn about how their lives have progressed.
