Ross comes from the extremely small town of Swedeborg, Missouri. Swedeborg only had an elementary school which Ross graduated from in 1996 with a graduating class of six. After school he tried different jobs and realized quickly that he enjoyed being around people and helping others.
Ross began working at CALO New Years Eve 2007 as an overnight care coach. He was placed on the day shift coaching team about a month later and now floats between day and evening shift where needed. While at CALO Ross believes he has found his calling. He feels that his personal life experiences can also help him to show the students at CALO a better way.
In 2007 Ross also joined the Missouri National Guard. He was deployed twice to State of Emergency duties with the Mississippi Flood of 2008 and Hurricane Gustav in Louisiana in 2008. Ross was deployed again and recently returned after spending over a year in Afghanistan.
Ross is married to Tisha and they have three beautiful children. He is enrolled in Central Texas College and plans to become a therapist. In his spare time he is active with his childrens' soccer games and does some coaching for his oldest son's team. He enjoys sports, paintball and cookouts with his family.
Welcome home, Ross. We're glad you're back.
