I am proud to live in Michigan and love the small town feel of Holland. My husband Martin and I have four wonderful, grown children between us.
Hobbies and Relaxation
As an artist, I love looking for opportunities to make art in a variety of mediums. When not entangled in my latest art project, you can find me gardening with Martin, enjoying bluegrass music festivals and exploring the beautiful, quaint villages that dot Michigan’s coastline.
Camping and hiking in Northern Michigan with family…my favorite!
What got you interested in this field?
As with most mornings, I would stop into JP’s coffee shop and meet with friends. One morning, Bruce was sitting with my friends. Happy to meet Bruce, we began talking. I was happy at my job and was not actively looking. A short time after that I was standing in CapTrust at the front desk and Bruce informed me that this position was available, should I be interested. After praying and thinking about it, I decided to pursue the front desk position – that was in 2008. I’m happy to say that I enjoy all aspects of my position at CapTrust. I think of this place the same way I think of my home…happy to welcome all individuals who come into our space. I’ve enjoyed being part of creating an appealing, friendly and helpful place for clients to come to. I’m so proud to represent CapTrust.
