Growing Up with a Love for Sports
Dominic's father was a teacher and basketball, track, and football coach in a small town in southwest Minnesota, where he grew up. For Dominic, sports became a way of life; he participated in both high school and college athletics and eventually began looking for a career that would allow him to stay involved in sports. He initially considered becoming an athletic trainer, but when he broke his wrist during his freshman year of college he participated in physical therapy treatment and decided that was his calling.
Dominic's free time revolves around his family. He and his wife Kellie have three daughters, ages 15, 12, and 9. Outside of Williams you can find him at his girls' soccer, lacrosse, volleyball, and basketball games. When he's not cheering on his daughters, he enjoys playing basketball, lifting weights, and participating in 5K runs and MudMan races. Dominic and his family also enjoy attending St. Cloud State Husky Hockey games.
Locally, Dominic volunteers with the Sartell Area Youth Basketball Association as a girls' basketball coach and is an active member of the Sartell Booster Club and Celebration Lutheran Church.
