Nick Schroer was born in St. Louis, Missouri. Growing up, Nick witnessed first-hand the value of hard work watching his mother, a postal-worker, and father, an auto-body laborer, provide for the family of six. After Nick graduated elementary school from Sacred Heart School in Florissant, MO, he went on to attend Trinity Catholic High School, where he became captain of the football and wrestling teams.
Nick became the very first member of his family to attend college. He began his undergraduate education at Central Methodist University on football scholarship. When an injury forced Nick out of football at the end of his first season, he obtained an acting scholarship, acting in several theatrical productions at CMU. Eventually, Nick graduated from the University of Missouri-St. Louis, earning a degree in Criminology/Criminal Justice.
Nick went on to Southern Illinois University School of Law on an academic scholarship. While at SIU School of Law, Nick served as the head research assistant for the head of the Health Law department and eventually had his research and articles published nation-wide. Mr. Schroer was the sole recipient of several scholastic and skill based scholarships, such as the Frank Bietto Memorial Scholarship, the Al H. and James A. Chesser Scholarship, the Health Law Contribution award, and the CALI Award for Excellence in Health Law Legislation. Also while at SIU School of Law, Nick was elected the President of the Law School Republicans and the Federalist Society in separate elections.
Nick is presently employed as General Counsel at Arrowhead Building Supply, Inc., located, in St. Charles County. Prior to working with Arrowhead, Nick was an attorney at a firm in St. Charles County. In 2014, Nick was named as a Top 40 Under 40 Family Law Attorney in Missouri. Nick interned with the Missouri State Public Defender, as well as Land of Lincoln Legal Services. All of these positions gave him the opportunity to listen and learn from his clients on how this State could present more opportunities for all of its citizens. This has empowered him with the knowledge needed to inform the legislative branch of what exactly needs to be done to make this State more prosperous.
Nick and his family have been residents of O'Fallon, MO since 2012 when they built their first home. Nick's wife, Kate, is a Nurse Practitioner that works in the district. The Schroers have two daughters and a rescue dog. In his free time, Nick enjoys farming, hunting, and fishing on his family farm in Fayette, MO.
