Todd, thank you so much for allowing us to ask you a few questions about yourself!
Our written interview included below focuses on each leader’s life, family, and motivation for being a part of Verity’s Village, as well as a few fun facts about their lives.
Todd, can you tell me a little bit about yourself?
I grew up in the mountains of Colorado, spent a brief time living on the island of Oahu, and have been in the Colorado Springs/ Monument area for the past 30 years with my wife, Lisa. My first career was as a 4th & 5th grade teacher. Twenty two years ago I acquired my real estate license and have been a Realtor and a small business owner ever since. My wife, Lisa, joined me in my real estate business to form the McLain Group.
Can you tell us about your family?
My wonderful wife, Lisa, and I have been married for 32 years. We have two adult children, Nicholas and Noah. Nicholas graduated from Gonzaga University and Noah from Texas Christian University.
What is something funny that no one would guess about you?
I am terrified of snakes and spiders.
What is your favorite drink?
What is your favorite board game?
What is your top 3 favorite podcasts/books/musical artist (you choose)?
I love the classics… The Grapes of Wrath, Lord of the Flies, and Robinson Crusoe.
How long have you served Verity’s Village?
Why did you join with Verity’s Village mission?
I believe that every human life is precious and made in the image of God. We met Ted, Beverly, and Verity at a home bible study when Verity was an infant. I instantly fell in love with precious Verity and was fascinated and inspired by her story. I was incredibly honored when presented with the opportunity to serve on a Board for an organization that would serve children with Trisomy 18 and their families.
What is the most important thing you have done with Verity’s Village?
I believe the most important thing I’ve done and continue to do is faithfully pray for the children with Trisomy 18 and for their parents.
Thank you, Todd, for sharing about your life, your family, and your passion for Verity’s Village!
