Richard is originally from Dallas TX and served in the Army for 5 years. Richard started working at Calo in 2016 because he wanted to make a difference in people’s lives. He was quickly moved to the Chiefs, the Teen Boys safety team, due to his ability to build relationships and provide safety for the most struggling students. During his time in the Chiefs, he learned how to maintain firm vertical relationships and create a safe environment for his students, which has helped him to grow as a staff and a person. Richard was promoted to Team Lead of the Tigerlilies in 2018 and enjoys this job because he believes in Calo and the good it can do for families. When not working, Richard enjoys spending time with Brooklynn, his wife of nine years, and his four children Mackenzie, Mason, Maxdon and Michael.
