While Rob enjoyed his career in Pennsylvania, he and his wife Stacey, had always committed to living in other parts of the country that were not nearly as cold in the winter, so when the opportunity to relocate to Louisiana presented itself, Rob accepted. Since one of Rob’s favorite hobby’s is cooking, especially Cajun food, this was a great opportunity!
