We would like to take a moment to recognize a member of our very valuable Board of Directors, Russell Goin – serving in the first year of his second term. Russell is Vice President of People and Culture at Newcrest Image , a driven Human Resources Executive with an extensive background of experience in Human Capital and Talent Management, and a real asset to the Frisco Family Services’ family.

Russell was b orn in Birmingham, Alabama, but he and his heart currently reside in Frisco. “As the dynamics of Frisco change and considerable growth continues, I want to help position the agency to serve all of those in need,” is what he most wants to accomplish during his time on the board. As a leader himself, he is most excited about the “continuous advancement of the agency, which is supported by exceptional leadership.”

As a true servant to our community, and a real go-getter, it is fitting that the best advice he has ever received is “It is not about me. True meaning and happiness only come from fulfilling God’s purpose,” and “you miss 100% of the shots that you don’t take,” is his favorite quote. Although he appreciates the wise words of Wayne Gretzky, ice hockey is not his favorite hobby. He most enjoys being on the lake and doing just about anything outdoors. He was even certified in scuba diving last year, recently taking his first dive. He may have a deep love for aquatics, but if given more hours in the day, he would choose to dive head first into the arms of his wife of 19 years, and their two children.

We treasure each and every Board member, and are so grateful for their time and talents dedicated to ensuring the success of our clients and building a caring community.
