    I was an IT director in the healthcare field for 28 years but always enjoyed doing household repair and maintenance. My wife and I purchased and renovated three homes in just two years as a hobby and are thrilled to continue this passion for our customer base through Mr. Handyman! "Flipping" a home is creative and rewarding, but isn't always easy when you have to look for specialists to come out and do a variety of professional jobs. I saw a great need for Mr. Handyman in our community and am excited to bring Mr. Handyman to Northern St Joseph and Elkhart!

    Before joining the Mr. Handyman team full-time, I was 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 Mr. Handyman.  When I don't have a paintbrush in my hand, I enjoy reading and growing roses.

    Operations Manager

    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.

    Customer Service Representative

    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.
