Lora is very active in the community and has served on a number of boards, including the Decatur County Family YMCA, Greensburg Rotary, Carousel Play & Learn Center, and Good Shepherd Christian Academy. She has recently served as the consumer member and past-president of the Indiana Board of Pharmacy, as well as the Indiana YMCA State Alliance public policy committee, heading up the YMCA State Advocacy Day with the Indiana legislature for the past two years.

Lora has taught business law at Butler University and Indiana Wesleyan University, and she is a frequent lecturer for the National Business Institute. She earned her BA from Purdue University and her JD/MPA from Syracuse University, and she is a member of the US Supreme Court Bar, the Indiana Bar Association, and the Decatur County Bar Association.

Tim grew up in southeast Alabama, and came to Indiana with FedEx. He enjoys helping with the youth sports teams, especially when Jessica and Tyler are playing on them. He also enjoys computers, technology and photography. Tim is a member of the Greensburg Masonic Lodge F.&A.M.
