Ron works with animals in veterinary medicine during his "day job." He is a recent graduate of the Veterinary Technician program at Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College (WITC).

Additionally, he served as an officer of the Student Chapter of the National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America.

Currently, Ron resides in Star Prairie with his girlfriend Lexi (also a vet tech), daughter Adrianna, two dogs (Tucker & Patch), and three cats (Zoe, CJ, Willow). When he's not busy working for veterans or helping animals, he can be found tinkering with his Subaru Outback, which is affectionately known as the "Dad Wagon," doing graphic design work on the computer, and enjoying time with his family.
