I was raised in Northern Wisconsin and have moved several times after attending White Lake High School in White Lake, Wisconsin and graduating from North Central College in Naperville, Illinois with a B.S. in Accounting.
I am currently employed as the General Manager of Edgewater Door, a fiberglass door manufacturing company servicing the industrial market sector. I oversee the business which is in Neenah and employs approximately 25 associates. Before this role I was the Vice President of Finance and Operations as Christian Heritage Academy, a private Christian school located in Northfield, Illinois. CHA was similar in size to Valley Christian. I oversaw the financial aspect of the school as well as the building and grounds and the athletic programs. Before CHA, I worked for Dover Corporation over a 20-year period in various finance and operations roles. Dover took me to many different geographical locations including Wisconsin, Illinois, Oklahoma, and Sweden. I started my career as an auditor for PricewaterhouseCoopers in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin office.
I have been married to my super-great wife Nicole since May 1995. We relocated to Greenville in 2021 from the Chicagoland area. Nicole works at VCS in the athletic department. We have 3 adult children including our son Josh (b. 1999) (who is married to our lovely daughter in law Emily), our daughter Annika (b. 2001), who is currently a kindergarten teacher at VCS and our daughter Elizabeth (b. 2004), who graduated from VCS in 2022 and is a sophomore at Grand Canyon University. Nicole and I attend Calvary Bible Church in Neenah.
Our family has a passion for Christian education, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to serve on the board at VCS. I also am the high school girls’ basketball coach and have a major passion overall for athletics. I feel that my background in both finance and operations brings a skill set that can assist VCS as the school continues to grow.
I have a passion for the development of young adults as they journey through this challenging world in which we live. I truly believe surrounding your children with strong Christian individuals provides them with a support system that they can rely on as they face day to day life. It is not to remove the tough life lessons but instead to provide support to help “navigate” those lessons as they arise.
