Civic: (past and present organizations, charities involvement)
I strongly believe that citizens have a responsibility to serve their community, state, and nation. I try to set an example of this for my children, just as my parents did for me. I currently serve as Secretary of the Bowne Township Planning Commission, where I strive to ensure the township is a great place to work, live, and raise a family through common sense policy decisions. In addition, I worked in the Michigan House of Representatives and Senate giving support to members who fought the job killing policies of the present administration. There, I learned a first-hand knowledge and understanding about the legislative process. I also have served on the Board of Directors for Alpha Women's Center in Grand Rapids, a crisis pregnancy counseling center whose mission is to show compassion and love to families facing unplanned pregnancy and to seek mercy for the unborn. I also serve on the Communications Committee for the Kent County Farm Bureau, the Board for the Great Start Collaborative of Kent County, and assist local FFA programs by judging FFA Leadership Contests.
