Doug and Monica are Co-owners of the Lincoln Franchise of

years, he is now a “silent partner” and returned to his previous profession of

Monica is a Founding Member of the John Maxwell Team of Coaches, Speakers and Trainers and enjoys fanning the flames of other people's dreams, as well as following her own!
Doug and Monica moved to Lincoln from Ohio in 1988 and raised their three children here, so Lincoln is home for their family! Their children are all grown now and live out of state but Doug and Monica take regular trips to visit them. When they built their home in 2005, they added an apartment for Doug's parents. Doug's mother passed away in 2008 but she was able to remain at home with hospice until the end-surrounded and cared for by her family. Doug's dad continues to live independently in the apartment. Enhancing the lives of other people's parents is a joy and a privilege.
