Zach is a Tucson native - born and raised right here in Tucson, Arizona. His father was a local contractor here in Tucson, so Zach grew up learning the building trades from a very young age. He was a card-carrying journeyman for the Carpenters Union Local 1506 for many years. He is also an officer for the Loyal Order of Moose which is involved in many charities that benefit the elderly and orphans. Zach began in the assisted living industry back in the 1990's doing volunteer maintenance work at the now defunct Molly's Christian Care Home. He later went on to supervise the maintenance of four different care homes before finally settling at Woodland Palms Assisted Living. He has a great passion for helping the elderly and just being around them.
