Professional Profile

I am the Director of Public Services for the City of St Johns. I am a licensed Water operator with the State of Michigan and hold an S-1 and D-2 License. I started my career with the city in July 1998 with the Water Division, working in all facets of operation with a specialization in the distribution system. In 2015, I was promoted to Water System Supervisor and continued my efforts to constantly improve the division, completing numerous projects to our plant, distribution and production systems. In 2023, I was promoted to my current position as the Director of Public Services where I lead our Water, Waste Water and Public Works Departments.

My goals revolve around the relationships I have with staff, residents and contractors. These relationships all help to make the Department of Public Services surpass our goals of providing safe, clean drinking water, operational sewer systems and beautiful streets to all of our residents. I strive to make all of the employees and departmental supervisors the best they can be every day.
