Meet The Friendly Team at Mr. Handyman of Northern St. Joseph and Elkhart Counties
For trusted and reliable service, hire Mr. Handyman of Northern St. Joseph and Elkhart Counties
I've been an IT director in the healthcare field for 28 years but have always enjoyed doing household repair and maintenance. My wife and I have purchased and renovated three homes in the last two years as a hobby. "Flipping" a home is creative and rewarding but isn't always fun when you have to look for someone to come out and do the professional jobs. I saw a great need for MrHandyman in our community and am excited to bring MrHandyman to Northern St Joe and Elkhart.
I've been an ICU nurse and university professor for 22 years. My husband and I have enjoyed working together on homes we purchased and renovated. We're both creative and willing to work hard for that potential we initially see in a house. Some of our purchases require more "vision" than others but we are passionate about turning houses into homes. I feel we bring this passionate drive and energy to our community's MrHandyman. When I don't have a paintbrush in my hand, I enjoy reading and growing roses.
In the past, I've worked in the home building business while attending college. I enjoy learning construction skills but also have an interest in business and finance. This job will give me a chance to use my background in both areas. I'm excited about working with our technicians and getting out in the field to meet our customers. For four years, I travelled to Nak Nek, Alaska where I worked as a deckhand for a commercial salmon fishing company. Each season, I spent 5 weeks straight on the boat when the sun shines 20 hours a day.
Kim is our office manager and comes from a background of bank management, customer service and sales. She oversees our technicians, coordinates the schedule, and assists customers on the phone. She is quite handy herself so she is very helpful to customers when they call. Kim has 4 children and is currently completing her last class to obtain her bachelor’s degree.

I am one of the CSR and am no stranger to customer service. I spent many years in the automobile business in parts, service, and sales as well as being a dealer. In the last few years I was VP and GM of an auto restoration shop that also serviced race teams with component parts. My wife Wanda and I travel the country showing Old English Sheepdogs that we also breed. I enjoy photography of landscapes and flowers that I market through galleries and a website that is in the process of being built.
