Faith in Jesus Christ is centric to Matt and his family. He has been blessed with the opportunity to serve the body of Christ as a Deacon, Sunday school teacher and involved layman. He also is grateful to our veterans and their families who continue to pay the debt service on our freedom. He gratefully serves on the Board of Centerstone Military Services (Nashville, Tennessee), an organization dedicated to serving the mental health needs of our active duty service men and women, veterans and their families.

Matt and his wife Rhonda try to spend as much time as possible with their 3 wonderful daughters, 3 amazing sons-in-law and 3 beautiful granddaughters. As part of luring their kids to vacation with them, they are continuing to explore the Caribbean, ultimately hoping to have visited each of the different islands. When not exploring the tropics, Matt enjoys an occasional round of golf, always with the hope that one day he will miraculously excel at the game he enjoys, but which frustrates him immensely. He’s also the proud papa of a lap dog named Raleigh.
