Professional Profile

A lifelong member of the St. Johns community, I was appointed to the St. Johns City Commission in 2013, elected to a full term in 2016, and served as mayor from 2018-2022.  

Currently the executive director of the Michigan Coalition Against Homelessness, I have been engaged in helping vulnerable populations as both a staff member and volunteer with various local, regional, and statewide organizations for more than 35 years. 

I have extensive experience in the non-profit sector including executive, program management, and outreach/engagement roles with various national and statewide organizations. I also spent several years as the director of the Ionia County MSU Extension Office where I was a member of a statewide State and Local Government Area of Expertise team.  

My community involvement includes long-time service on the boards of Safe Center (aka RAVE), the Mental Health Association in Michigan, Clinton Area Care Center, Briggs District Library, and the Ionia County Economic Alliance, just to name several. I have also served on many other county and state level committees and advisory boards.
