Originally from The Bronx, NY, Ron is a Wisconsin transplant
and credits the Veterans of Foreign Wars with saving his life and giving him a
renewed sense of purpose. Ron earned his eligibility into the VFW while serving
in the United States Marine Corps as a Data Analyst & System Administrator
for both rotary and fixed-wing aircraft squadrons. He made multiple deployments
to both Iraq and Afghanistan during his time as a Marine.
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). He served as the WITC
Ambassador-New Richmond Campus and President of the Veterans Club. 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.
