A life-long resident of Ottawa, KS, Parker graduated from Ottawa High School and went on to receive a degree in accounting from Fort Hays State University. After graduation, Parker worked in lending and IT compliance at a community bank, where he was able to increase his familiarity with the local community and gain real-world financial experience. Parker is looking forward to being able to combine his interest in finance with enthusiasm for developing meaningful, lasting connections with others.
Parker and his wife, Julie, live in Ottawa where they recently completed a full remodel of their first home. In his free time, he enjoys reading anything related to history, golfing, hiking, and spending time outdoors.
Parker is actively involved in his church as well as the Franklin County Historical Society.
