  About Rick
  I am proud of my family. I am married to Kristi who is a science and Spanish teacher in Kennewick. We have five children.  The oldest three are married and live in the Tri-Cities, and the youngest two are in Richland Schools.

My family and I are active in our community church, where I serve on the leadership council.  I believe in service, and have served on mission trips locally and around the world, including India, Thailand, and Latin America.
