Heath was raised in a small-town Southwest Missouri and has lived in multiple states ultimately settling in the amazing town of Woodsboro. Heath ended up in Woodsboro after meeting his partner in 2016 who is a Woodsboro native whose family has been here for 10 generations. In 2016 they bought a home together in Woodsboro. Heath fell in love with the town the first time he saw it and knew this is where he wanted to live and help preserve the charm for generations to come.

Heath works in Human Resources for a large corporation and holds a BA in Human Resources Management from Southeastern Louisiana University, an MS in Human Resources Development from Pittsburg State University, and an MBA from Salem International University. Heath enjoys traveling, spending time with his 9 nieces and nephews and having them come and stay the summers with him, and showing them the area, the beach, and visiting American historical sites. Heath’s goal is to preserve Woodsboro’s historic main street district while drawing more businesses to the town while maintaining its small-town charm.

Heath really enjoys meeting the town residents and being involved with activities and organizations. In his 5 years here, he has become a member of the Woodsboro Evangelical Lutheran Church, and the American Legion where he is a Sons of the American Legion member. Even though he is a newer resident he has studied the history and along with his partner who is heavily involved in town activities and plans to help keep Woodsboro great like it was when he fell in love with it.
