Jeff is the founder and director of Mind & Soul, which he began in 2017 as a mental health ministry. He is a Speaker, Registered Nurse, Spiritual & Mental Health Educator, and Minister. His ministry credentials have been with the Evangelical Association for the last decade. Jeff has been speaking to audiences of all sizes since 1995. He led ministries and local churches from 1999 to 2018, when he stepped away from pastoral ministry to pursue a sense of calling from the Lord to simplify life. Besides speaking and leadership in the church world, Jeff has worked as a nurse since 2008, providing mental, spiritual, and physical care as a Registered Nurse. The subsequent years as a nurse have brought him countless opportunities to hone and use his leadership skills in the world of healthcare. He serves currently as the Director of Clinical Education & Engagement for a large, nation-wide organization that focuses on the care of clients who have intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Jeff has spent a lot of time preparing to help others, and he has several degrees, including degrees in nursing, counseling, and ministry. He is currently working on a PhD in Theology, with the goal of publishing a dissertation exploring the intersection of spiritual intelligence, emotional intelligence, and retention in the healthcare workforce.

Most important to Jeff are the love of his life, his wife Michele, and their 5 (mostly) grown children (and their growing families). Jeff and Michele enjoy camping, doing projects together around the house, spending as much time with their 5 as they can get, finding fun new restaurants with friends, and listening to live music.
