Involved in athletics all my life, played football, basketball and baseball at Boerne High School, in 1984 I graduated from Angelo State University with a B.S. in Physical Education anticipating a career in coaching. However, previous experiences with youth ministry lead to a move to Fort Worth Texas to attend Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. While in seminary worked at the Buckner Baptist Children’s Home in Dallas housing abandoned and refugee children. Upon completing my Master’s Degree in Religious Education in 1987 I moved to San Antonio to assist my father with his practice in clinical psychology. In 1990 while in San Antonio completed a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology from Our Lady of the Lake University.
