Admissions Officer

BIO: I am humbled, honoured and thrilled to be given this opportunity to serve as LCBI’s Admissions Officer. My wife Kristy, daughters Nora (8) and Elly Clara (4) are also excited to make the move from the fjords of western Norway to the riverbanks of the South Saskatchewan in Outlook. As an alumnus (class of 1995), LCBI’s education, sports, faith programs, music and amazing campus community has resonated with me ever since I graduated. I have been involved in volleyball for the past 17 years coaching at all levels; from my daughter’s U9 team up to the Norwegian men’s national team. I am currently working as a volleyball coach at Sunnfjord Folk High School. I feel proud to have the opportunity to represent LCBI again. There have been many jerseys I have worn over the years, but wearing maroon and gold with the cross and the crown gave me the most meaning. The job will be challenging and demanding but I sense there is great vision from the board of regents along with a solid team of staff to help me in the transition. My family and I are looking forward to joining the LCBI family and getting involved in the Outlook community.
