When asked what drew him to the National Park Service and to us in particular, Tim had this to say: "I joined the National Park Service for I believed in (and still do) the mission of preserving and protecting our cultural and natural resources for future generations. I applied to Richmond National Battlefield Park due to a desire to work at a Civil War site in Virginia and at the same time, move closer to family members. Having worked a number of years on the Blue Ridge Parkway, as well as marrying a native of the Lynchburg area, I have a strong sense of belonging here in the great state of Virginia."
