Richard is a fourth generation Northsider and graduate of IUPUI in 1997 with a degree in Healthcare Administration. After eight years in the US Air Force working in health care, including a deployment to Iraq and disaster relief efforts after Hurricane Katrina, 

he returned to civilian life. During his time in the Air Force completed graduate studies at Baylor University and an Administrative Fellowship at Johns Hopkins in Maryland. He is a Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives and board certified in Healthcare Administration. 
The Rivi has been blessed in recent years with noticeable investments in facilities and programming, from which we all benefit. I would hope to bring my strategic planning expertise, nonprofit board experiences and administrator training to help us sustain this development. Key areas of interest for me include sustainability and improvement of our physical plant and campus, development of a growth strategy for membership, engagement with our community, and development of our dining facilities to support the growing social aspects of our club.
