Ben’s love of the outdoors led him to pursue an education in Forestry from the University of the South – Sewanee, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in 2000. Ben resides in McMinnville with his wife and family, where he remains active in the local outdoors community, serving on the board of directors for the Friends of the South Cumberland State Park, and as a member of Friends of the Greenway.
