“Servant Leadership has always been at the heart of everything I do. Respect and Leadership are not given but earned and developed overtime. Experience is one thing, but the ability to serve and work in the trenches with those you are leading will develop trust, respect, and confidence in your abilities to guide and direct them. Much like love is a verb, so is leading. Doing produces more fruit and success rather than telling. As an Athletic Trainer and a Health care provider I get to serve those around me daily from my coaches, athletes/patients, parents, and colleagues.”

Even with all his success, Brent’s true passion lies with his wife and 6 kids. He loves nothing more than spending time with his family from relaxing inside watching a movie or playing the homerun derby in the park. The only thing that matters is being with his family. He is an avid fan of all sports as well. He is excited to finally be back in St. Louis to watch the Cardinals and Blues.
No matter what he is doing in life, his mission statement is simple, “Change the lives of those around you.”
