Aaron was born and raised in Alexandria, Indiana and currently resides in Fishers, Indiana. He has a beautiful wife and two lovely daughters Ava and Ellie, as well as two spoiled Dachshunds. One of Aaron’s life long passions is the outdoors. Aaron’s keen interest for fishing began as a small child while fishing local farm ponds with his father. Aaron recalls learning life lessons during his family’s annual fishing trip to Mesick, Michigan fishing the Mantisee.
Building on the skills learned as a young child, Aaron competed in several amateur fishing events throughout Indiana. Aaron now spends his spare time fly-fishing the White River for Smallmouth Bass. During the winter months Aaron pursues his love for the outdoors by ice fishing and hunting white-tailed deer
Aaron earned his Masters in Nursing and a Masters in Business Administration from Anderson University and is currently the Manager of Clinical Operations and Trauma Center for Indiana University Health Methodist Hospital. Developing the Indiana chapter for Fishing’s Future is an important priority to Aaron. “The mission of Fishing’s Future is to introduce and reconnect kids to the outdoors, while creating the unique opportunity for families to strengthen bonds through fishing. Families today have to compete with technology to connect to each other; our clinics will provide an opportunity for parents to get kids outside while strengthening their relationships with one another. Teaching children the art of fishing is vital to the preservation, conservation, and restoration of our natural habitats.
The lifelong lessons I’ve learned from fishing include patience, persistence, and respect. These virtues have shaped my life and encouraged me to make right life decisions. I encourage parents to come out to a clinic and experience the special bond that fishing can create. It’s about being together.“
