I started working in the Office of University Advancement in 2005 having spent the previous seven years with the TRAILS Department at the Maryville Treatment Center as the program evaluation coordinator. In my current role as major gifts development officer, I have the opportunity to engage alumni and friends with Northwest Missouri State University as well as establish new relationships in which we all have a common bond -- that being a deep fondness and a willingness to support our alma mater.

My wife, Bonnie, and I are both graduates of Northwest as well as are our sons and their wives, Grant '03 and Jennifer Greis '04 Sutton and Brian '98 and Gina Hayes '01 Sutton. In addition, our daughter, Sundi, graduated from Northwest in 2006. Bonnie and I love to attend events on campus, travel, golf and spend time with family, including our four grandsons (and future Bearcats), Jack, Logan, Hudson  and Sawyer and our granddaughter, Lucy. I am proud to be part of the Bearcat family and truly believe that "Once a Bearcat, Always a Bearcat."
