Scott is the Dad Translator for Momivate.
As a father of five and retired Army officer, he understands the importance of mothers and the great work they do. One can fight for freedom all day long, but without mothers to raise our children it seems like a lost effort.
Scott has experienced the typical “Father’s role”. He would leave the house early in the morning for work and return later than he liked at night. Due to his military duties he was often deployed for months at a time leaving the entirety of raising the children to his wife. Scott would take every advantage to spend time with his kids when he was home and teach them what he could. He depended a great deal on his wife for daily care.
Scott is now retired and is currently going through a divorce. This is allowing Scott to take on a different role in his children’s lives. He is excited for the opportunity and somewhat daunted by what lies ahead.
Scott is eager to serve as the Dad translator. His priorities are to help others understand and value Mothers more and to help Dads who may be in similar circumstances understand the new roles they are stepping into, covering more of the traditional “Mother’s roles”. Scott hopes to be able to share some of the insight he has gained through over twenty years of marriage, living in six countries and traveling to sixty-nine countries with kids in tow.
Scott has a Bachelor’s degree in Russian, a Master’s in Business Administration, and a Master’s in Eurasian Studies. Scott currently works in security for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He enjoys spending time with his four boys who are still at home and, when he can, his daughter who is currently studying at the University of Utah. In his free time, Scott enjoys sky diving, trail running, mountain biking, riding his motorcycle, and watching movies. Scott loves being in the outdoors, but doesn’t get there near as often as he would like.
