David is Montana native and has lived in Kalispell since 1998. David and his wife, Erika, have a son and a daughter, both of whom attend Kalispell Middle School. David got involved with DREAM because his son is a participant, and David saw the positive impact DREAM had on his son and the other participants. David works as the Judge of the Montana Workers’ Compensation Court. In his spare time, David enjoys golf, fly fishing, running, and skiing.
Billy moved to the valley in May of 2013 from New England/New York. One of the first things he did was get involved with Dream Adaptive Recreation. Billy has a son who is autistic and became familiar with programs similar to Dream that help individuals with disabilities enjoy life to the fullest. Billy is involved with the DREAM summer and winter programs and states it is one of the best decisions he has made. He loves being able to work with the participants and see the joy and smiles on their faces when they are done for the day. When Billy finishes a day of volunteering, he’s not sure if he was the teacher or the one being taught. In his spare time Billy also volunteers with the Creston Fire Department and is excellent at saving cats that are stuck in trees and putting out illegal bonfires!
