Kevin’s Bio:

Kevin was born and raised in Tucson, at the base of the Catalina Mountains.  He attended public elementary and middle school in northeastern Tucson, then followed family tradition to attend Salpointe High School.  After graduation, he moved to Rhode Island to attend Brown University, where he graduated magna cum laude with a degree in Economics.

Following college, he served as a 5th grade public school teacher in the East Side of San Jose, California; interned for Representative Gabby Giffords taking in constituent communication in Congress; worked as an English language educator in Aguascalientes, Mexico, on a Fulbright scholarship, and helped former Governor Tim Kaine’s campaign for Senate in Virginia.

After his time out of state, Kevin moved back home to Southern Arizona, where he became the general manager of a local retail business.  Then he joined family firm Volk Company as a real estate agent focused on bringing people together for win-win deals for small businesses.  Now Kevin is dedicated to development and re-development of commercial and housing properties, and has founded a small business to create affordable, sustainable prefabricated housing units from a manufacturing facility in Tucson.

Kevin is passionate about learning about the issues that affect Arizonans and interacting with experts to help come up with solutions.
