Chad Johnson

My wife and I moved to Durango in 2001 and I have been blessed with three wonderful children.  I was born and raised on a farm in Iowa. I have been fortunate to work with the McAlvany Financial Group since 2002. I currently serve on the board of several local non-profits. When I am not busy at work or volunteering, you will find me in the woods, with my family, enjoying all that Durango has to offer!
