Chris Warner grew up in the Cajun enclave of New Iberia, Louisiana. He attended LSU in Baton Rouge on an academic scholarship, receiving two degrees from the Ole War Skule. In 2002, he received a doctorate from the University of New Orleans. A former high school teacher and college professor, Chris is a firm believer that education is the key to happiness and success in life. Chris believes people operate best within their strengths and he ascribes faithfully to what his long-time mentor, the motivational genius, Coach Dale Brown, asserts, that: "The biggest journey a person will take in life is learning oneself...and that once you embrace change you will manifest your destiny--your thought pattern will determine your life pattern!" Chris has two loving daughters, Madilyn Amelia and Emma Claire. He lives in Perdido Key, Florida.
