Over the years, he has mentored people with a range of career interests, aspiring educational leaders, and seasoned professionals. He retired from education in 2022 to focus on his other passions-- family, fitness, and life coaching.

In 2015, he founded ROK Running, a Christian-based, youth running program. In 2020, ROK Fitness began, which includes fitness training for all ages, as well as life coaching.
