What is your current role and responsibilities with the Assisted

Goals Foundation?

 

As the President, I help oversee the day to day operations of the Assisted Goals Foundation. This includes soliciting donations from our generous corporate and private supporters, managing our expanding partnerships, and continuing to strive towards making hockey a more obtainable sport for everyone.

Why did I get involved with the Assisted Goals Foundation?

 

I didn’t grow up with organized ice hockey. Instead, I played golf, basketball, baseball and many pick-up hockey games. When my family first moved back to the Pittsburgh area from Florida, we spent a lot of time at the rink watching my oldest nephew play ice hockey. The next thing we knew, my daughter wanted to learn how to play so she, too, could skate with a team. As I began to coach more and she continued to play more, it became evident that hockey is an expensive sport. I got wind of the idea for the foundation while coaching with the organization’s founder and was excited to join the team. Working to help take some of the burden off of families in need so that young athletes can continue to build character, learn accountability, and grow their love for hockey is about as rewarding as coaching the sport.

 

 

What is your professional background and how does it translate to the Assisted Goals Foundation?

 

I am the Director of Operations for a nationwide Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business that primarily does contracts with the Department of Veterans Affairs. In my 20+ years with the company, I have managed the daily operations of over 300 employees in thirteen states across the country.

 

 

Tells us something about you?

I am the most fortunate husband and father in the world. My ability to be a youth hockey coach and non-profit volunteer can be directly attributed to the support of my wife Marie. She also has a huge impact on the ability for our daughter to flourish as a young student- athlete by ensuring that our lives stay grounded and balanced, while making sure it always stays fun. Being able to spend time with my family, whether or not we are at the rink, always makes me smile.
