Quint is a native Montanan and grew up in Anaconda. After graduating from high school in the mid 80’s, Quint began his studies at Montana Tech and quickly realized school was not the next step for him. He joined the Marine Corps in the Spring of 1985. Quint believes his time as an ambitious crewman in Okinawa and Camp Pendleton provided critical opportunities that helped shape him into the person he is today. Following his service, Quint worked for the Montana DNRC as a wildland firefighter on an initial attack engine. He also enrolled at The University of Montana, graduating with a degree in English and Secondary Education.
In 1999, Quint began work for the former Montana Public Employees Association as a field representative and then as Assistant Director. IN 2006, he was hired as Executive Director and served in this role until 2018 when the organization merged with another union. Quint remains Deputy Executive Director, and is responsible for supervision of all field operations.
Quint has been happily married to his wife, Jill, for 21 years, and together they have three wonderful daughters and three amazing dogs. He spends his summer weekends hiking into mountain lakes to fish and, being a true Montanan, spends the fall in search of elk with a bow or rifle.
When asked to serve on the board, Quint responded: “I believe I owe it to my fellow veterans who have gone in harm’s way and been fortunate enough to return home. My time in the military was safe by comparison. I can say that I have all of my parts and am whole. Veterans over the course of the last 20+ years do not often find themselves in that position. I firmly believe that because I can, I am obligated to ‘cover their six’ and support them as they work to heal and continue on with their lives.”
