Troy first became involved in Ride For Reading through bicycling friends and later when his son Tyler wanted to participate with Nashville schools through book donations and delivery rides. After attending events and deliveries for 4 years, he was encouraged to participate in helping to shape the future through the RFR board. Troy works with Vanderbilt Health as Vice President for Population Health. He is a Colorado native and grew up doing cool things outside and now gets to do those same activities with his kids. He previously served the Nashville Habitat For Humanity team in developing a strategic plan for 2020 by working with their board and executive staff and also served in the Oasis bike workshop. After 6 moves and various states, he’s settled into Tennessee and likes the community that bicycling, reading and volunteering builds. Troy was educated at San Diego State University and later Vanderbilt’s Owen School. He and his family now reside in Brentwood, where they hope to stay.
