- What I do
I have been a part of the Volunteer Center since 1997. Currently, the Volunteer Center and other United Way staff are in the midst of strategic planning for the center. We are expanding our skill-based volunteer program and providing resources for the community initiative funded by Grand Rapids Community Foundation to engage experienced adults in solving the problem of homelessness in Grand Rapids. These are very exciting times for the service movement and I am grateful to be a part of it.
I am a past president of the Volunteer Management Association of Western Michigan and a current trainer for the Dorothy A. Johnson Center for Philanthropy at Grand Valley State University.
Prior to coming to Grand Rapids in 1996, I was the Director of the Shawnee County Welfare-to-Work program in Topeka, Kansas.
