My wife and I were married in August 2000. We moved to Cedar Springs in July 2014 to be close to our family; plus we love the area. We have 2 children in Cedar Springs Public Schools and one who will start in a few years. My wife grew up in Cedar Springs area. Her parents and siblings are still in the area. I grew up in an educational household; both my parents were school teachers. My Father-in-law is a school teacher as well.
I have a strong desire to help provide the best for the schools. Quality education is the key to our children's future. I wanted to help ensure a quality educational environment and opportunity for my kids and all the children in the Cedar Springs school district.
I have worked for Consumers Energy since 1999 in various roles and increasing scope of leadership.
My hobbies include sharing the outdoors with my children fishing and hunting. I also enjoy baseball and softball. I transitioned from playing to helping with little leagues and supporting my kids' coaches.
It is an honor to serve the Cedar Springs Public School district as a Board Member.
