I am a wife, mother and businesswomen who lives in the city of Cedar Springs. I have been married for 33 years to Steve Reed. We are both graduates of Cedar Springs Public Schools. Together we have 3 boys; Trey, Thomas and Trevor. For 27 years, I have been responsible for property management issues, finance and compliance for over 1,300 families at 48 locations in Michigan.
I wanted to join the School Board because I have a sense of duty to this community and I am community centered. I will keep kids first in decisions, by asking the question "who benefits?" I will be financially focused and look for the highest and best use of the taxpayer dollars. My main goal is to do what I can to help Cedar Springs Public Schools achieve and improve. We have multiple challenges ahead; first meeting all students needs with limited funding. My work and life experiences will be an asset to the School Board.
My hobbies include attending my kids activities, research and reading, visiting the lake, estate sales and being a Dyslexia advocate. I am so very thrilled to be part of the Cedar Springs Public Schools School Board.
