Background: I grew up in the Bloomingdale area, and have lived in Gobles for over 20 years. Lorie and I have been married 26 years, and we have raised our four children here. We have been members of St. Jude’s Parish since 1986, where I have been the Senior High Sunday School Catechist for 17 years. I have also coached Gobles Little League for 20 years, and served on the Gobles School Improvement Team. I have served on several other professional association boards, including the Michigan Christmas Tree Association, the Mid-America Christmas Tree Association (currently serving), the Michigan Seedling Growers Association (currently serving), and the Legislative Committee of the National Christmas Tree Association.

Reasons on Board: As a parent, I am concerned with maintaining the academic excellence being offered to our children. I also understand the important role that extracurricular activities play in the formation of our children. As a long-time community member, I have developed positive relationships with many of the residents of Gobles and believe that I will represent their needs and desires very well. It is my goal to work with the Board, administrators, faculty, and the community to maintain and enhance our children’s overall educational experience. I believe my leadership experience and common sense will be an asset to the Board as it faces many upcoming challenges.
