I started out my career path in law enforcement in the central Florida area. After a few defining moments my attention shifted to an opportunity to join the family business back in Michigan to shape its future. After spending 27 years shaping and growing the company we decided it was time to sell the company. I stayed with the new company long enough to complete the transition in a smooth and efficient manner. Once that completed I took a Sr. Management position to over see the buildings and ground of a 500 acre resort. Now that my oldest child has graduated and after being encouraged to seek opportunities in the Waco area from some very dear friends of mine, now presents the opportune time to do so. I love to volunteer and have spent 26 years as a volunteer for the National Cherry Festival which is an 8 day community celebration of the cherry industry. This celebration plans, promotes and executes over 190 events in the 8 days. Three years I served as an event director, Festival of Races, taking this event from 300 participants to over 1500 participants and turning it into one of the top 5 netting events of the festival. Another 10 of those years were served at an executive board level and in 2011 I served as the President. I am married with two kids. My oldest daughter who recently graduated high school and will be attending Loyola - Chicago this fall. My son, who is 13, loves the aerospace industry which makes locating to the area ideal so he may continue to explore all the areas to shape his future.
