    It's been a pleasure serving on the WPCS Board of Education for the past four years.  The changes and growth we've experienced are a testament to the hardworking people of our community who believe our children are our future.
    I am the proud parent of two WPCS students. My work experience includes purchasing, bill of material writing, customer service, sales, and an elementary aide position.  I am currently a dental assistant.  I've had several years of volunteer experience with White Pigeon Parks and Rec, Central Parent Organization , and two YES campaigns.  My husband, Jason, and I enjoy outdoor activities with the boys.

    "It takes a village to raise a child" Proud to be a CHIEF!

    I grew up in Essexville, MI, graduated from Garber High School and Delta College.  We moved here in 2008 and chose WP after visiting several area schools.  Both of my children graduated from WPCS, and I currently teach Dental Assistant courses at Ross Medical Education Center in Granger, IN.  Being involved in the school system is a reqarding experience for me.  Seeing the enthusiasm that the staff and administration have for the students keeps me excited and involved.

    It is an honor to be entering my first year as a member of the White Pigeon Board of Education. I am a 2000 graduate of White Pigeon High School. For the last 8 years I have served as the White Pigeon Township Fire Chief. I began my career as Cadet with the department in 1998 while still attending High School. I am employed fulltime by Semco Energy as a Gas Mechanic. I married my wife, Heather in 2003 and we have 2 wonderful children. Our daughter Abbi is 7 and in first grade and our son Carson is 5 and in kindergarten. Our family enjoys vacationing in the south during spring break, camping during the summer months, bicycle rides and attending motorcycle flat track racing events.

    I look forward to helping our district reach our goals and seeing that our students get the opportunity that they deserve. Once a Chief, always a Chief!

    Being the newest member to serve on the board, I am really looking forward to this chance to represent the families of WPCS.  I am married to my husband Jimmy for 22 years and together we have 2 teenagers, Shelby Jo is 19 and a 2015 graduate of WPCS and Lucas is 17 and is home schooling at the present time.  We have been a host family for foreign exchange students also and foster parents for two years.  I've been a member of the White Pigeon Community for more than 35 years, coming from a big family and proudly graduating with the class of 1977. 
    Most of my working experience has been in shift management, inventory control, quality control, and customer service.  For the last 11 years I have worked for the worlds largest employer and am a very proud Wal-Mart associate.  I have the honor of representing associates statewide being a member of the State Giving Program.  
     
    In my free time I enjoy my family, sewing, crafting, and going to bazaars and fundraisers with my small businesses.
    Very proud to be a Chief!  "Chiefs Rock"
