I am retired Boeing Executive and married to my wife, Jane since 1991. We have three children and five grandchildren. We both grew up in Washington state but were drawn to the majestic beauty of Montana in the spring of 2013. We finished building our home there in the fall of 2016. I enjoy hiking, but love to get out on the river to fly fish as often as possible!
While growing up in Seattle, I enjoyed athletics in a variety of sports, including swimming, basketball, baseball, and golf. As an adult, my many hours of working led to the typical poor daily habits that effected my health. In December of 2008, I had a heart attack and my wife and I were both overweight. It became clear to us that the unhealthy effects of processed food and poor choices had taken it’s toll so my wife and I began to make intentional lifestyle changes. I quit smoking, we were reading labels, and being intentional about what we were eating. Over the next year and a half, I had lost 30 lbs and Jane lost over 50lbs. This gave us a new lease on life and enabled a more active lifestyle.
My first experience with Young Living Essential Oils began with my wife purchasing Frankincense and Myrrh at a 2010 Christmas shopping event. I was originally skeptical but after utilizing the essential oils and seeing the results, I began to realize how well they can support the body systems. My wife and I systematically began to remove as many toxic products from our household (toxic/synthetic cleaners, air fresheners, personal care products, low quality supplements, over the counter remedies, etc) and replaced them with Young Living’s all-natural products. My favorite essential oils are Peppermint and Cedarwood. Shutran Shave Cream and Peppermint-Cedarwood Soap are my favorite personal care products. We also use all the Thieves household cleaning product line in our home and my wife and I have been drinking a few ounces of the “total body support” Ningxia Red since 2011.
Having been in the aerospace manufacturing business for over 30 years, I understand that quality is all about process control. I’m very impressed with Young Living’s “Seed to Seal” process which produces the extraordinary high quality Young Living essential oils and products.
