Chad was born in Pennsylvania and moved to Texas after graduating from college. Shortly after his arrival in Dallas he met his future wife Emily. Chad’s main passion in life outside of his love for his wife, 3 dogs, and a cat, is soccer. Chad was lucky enough to get to play for the USVI national team for the FIFA World Cup qualifiers in 2011. When he is not playing soccer or working on the house he performs the role of a software developer, mostly internet technology.
Emily is a full-blooded Texan and never lived outside of the state prior to moving to St. Croix. When she met Chad she informed him she would never leave her beloved state. Part of this statement was targeted at the state of Pennsylvania, but mostly it is due to her love of all things Texas, including UT. While she spends a large part of her day in the role of attorney, she refuses to be defined by it. Emily would prefer to spend her days doing and teaching yoga. As a certified instructor she teaches a few private classes each week and wishes there was more time to attend classes for herself. Emily has also been on the St. Croix Animal Welfare Center board for the past three years. Somewhere in that free time she manages to train for the occasional marathon.
