Where are you from? Where did you grow up?
I was born in Red Deer and grew up in Innisfail.
Why do you (did you) choose Stettler as home?
I relocated to Stettler in 2014 to grow my career by managing the local Kal Tire. Shortly afterwards, I met my wife, Kaitlyn, who had also recently moved here to pursue a career in nursing. Since then, we started our family here, and we are now proud to call Stettler home.
What do you do? What is your full title?
I manage the local Kal Tire, and I am a Town Councilor with the Town of Stettler.
I graduated high school in Innisfail and have no post-secondary education. I have been fortunate for many years to have a career with a company that has provided me with on-the-job training and many personal development opportunities.
I am married to Kaitlyn Randell, and we are proud parents of two sons, ages 2 and 11. My Grandmother has lived here since before I can remember, and both my parents also now live in Stettler.
Who inspired you in your youth? My parents shaped me into the person I am today. They taught me the value of family, honesty, and hard work.
Who inspires you now?
My family inspires me to be my best. I want to be the best role model I can for my children.
Do you have any hobbies?
I enjoy camping, fishing, hunting and spending time with friends and family. I recently started tinkering in 3D design and 3D printing in my spare time.
What are your plans for the future?
I have learned over the past few years that life is short, and things don't always go as planned. I just want to spend as much time as possible enjoying life with my family, whatever life has in store. I am excited to be serving my first term on town council and look forward to what unfolds with this new chapter.
Anything else you would like to add about being a resident of Stettler County?
I never expected to call Stettler home, but over the last eight years, I have become proud to call myself a Stettlerite. I am thankful to this community for everything it has provided my family.
Thank you to Travis Randell for participating in our Local Spotlights.
