Board of Directors Spotlight - Ken Schwartz
We would like to take a moment to recognize a member of our very valuable Board of Directors, Ken Schwartz – Attorney, Conifer Health Solutions, and Frisco Family Services Board Secretary. Originally from Sumter, South Carolina, Ken also lived in Georgia (Savannah and Atlanta) for 12 years before calling Frisco his home since 2010.

Ken excitedly states, “It’s great to be part of an organization with so many great people doing so many great things. I'm constantly impressed by how much energy and focus the team has, and how much they get accomplished for the community. I want to help Frisco Family Services do as many amazing things as possible, and have the greatest positive impact on the community that we can for as long as possible.” Ken is in his 3rd year serving on the board where he uses his talents to help meet the current and future needs of our community.

Ken spends most of his free time with his two wonderful kids, and supporting them in their theatrical shows, and even performing with them from time to time. If he had more hours in the day he would write a book titled "How to Find the Time to Write a Book", travel and visit family more.

The best advice I ever received came from a prior boss in a job interview, “What I do for work should always be the third priority in my life behind my family and God, in whatever order and in whatever way that I understand God.” My favorite quote is "Every single person you meet is fighting a battle that you know nothing about."

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.
