I am one of the 2 Owners of SERVPRO MLC. I have been a Mason County resident my entire life. I am happily married to my wife Susan who is a teacher at Ludington Area Catholic schools right here in Ludington. Together, we have 3 beautiful children. I am also the owner & operator of a cattle farm in Free Soil and have been for more then 40 years. I began my journey with SERVPRO in 2002 as Operations Manager. I then worked up to Partner/Owner in 2008. Having been a part of a small town my entire life and knowing many people in this community, I always wanted to do more to help out, so I worked my way up to becoming part owner so that I could do just that. I truly, truly enjoy helping people and seeing the joy on their face knowing that everything is going to be okay in their time of a complete disaster and to me it doesn't get any better!

I am Co-Owner of SERVPRO MLC. I have spent much of my life right here in Manistee and am happily married and have 2 beautiful children. I am also a very proud grandpa of 2 very energetic, happy kids. Aside from my family, I find a lot of enjoyment when I am sailing the high seas or hitting the slopes cross-country skiing. I obtained a degree in Mechanical Engineering from Lake Superior State University. I began my very exciting journey with SERVPRO 14 years ago. I have found that you can't work in an industry such as SERVPRO if you truly don't enjoy helping people. There is just no room for that. We strive to empathize with each and every scenario and do our best to help out that person and chances are we personally know them or know someone who does and at that point, we are not doing a job for a customer, were helping out a friend and that is what I love most about SERVPRO.

I am the General Manager of SERVPRO here in Ludington. I joined the SERVPRO team around 8 years ago. Originally from the Detroit area I moved to Manistee after earning my Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Architecture. I am grateful I moved to Manistee to join the SERVPRO team because through getting involved with the community I met my wife. Recently my wife and I moved to Ludington. We are really looking forward to being a part of the community in Ludington and raising our family there. I am especially looking forward to providing the Ludington community with quality cleaning and restoration work through our new office located in Scottville.

I am the Marketing Representative here at SERVPRO. I was born and raised right here in Mason County and a 2005 Freesoil graduate. I have 2 children that put a smile on my face every day all while keeping me very much on my toes. The thing that I enjoy most about SERVPRO is their emphasis on family. SERVPRO cares. It's obvious that their main focus is the happiness of the customer and it goes without saying that SERVPRO will do just about anything to make sure that their customers are overly satisfied. SERVPRO also relays that same emphasis back onto their employees. I feel so blessed to work for a company that is so family driven.

I am the Office Manager here at SERVPRO. I have been a member of the SERVPRO family since 2003. A Manistee native, I taught pre-school, first & second grade all over the north eastern United States. I really enjoyed traveling seeing the new sites leading up to my next adventure. I'd have to say that the best part of being apart of this wonderful company is being able to help someone when their life has been interrupted by disaster. I am very proud of our staff and their ability to empathize with our customers while they strive to "Like it never even happened."

I am a Field Manager at SERVPRO. I have been with the company almost a year now and have loved every minute of it. I am newly engaged and my fiance and I just purchased our first home right here in Ludington. Being born and raised in Manistee and having heard such great things about SERVPRO, I was very excited to become part of the team. What I enjoy most about working for SERVPRO is pretty simply put, I like helping people. Every day I come to work knowing that I'm going to make a difference in someone's life. Every site that I go on is different so it's exciting to see what is coming next and it brings me great joy to know that I just helped bring a smile to someone's face when their world has just been flipped upside down.

I am a Crew Chief here at SEVRPRO. I have worked for SERVPRO for about 6 months and even though I am a new employee, I feel like a member of the family. I am happily married with 3 beautiful girls and our family dog named Marley. I am a Army veteran and was a purple heart recipient. I was born and raised in Freesoil and graduated from there as well. I worked on the oil rigs for many years and even after my discharge from the army, I always wondered when I was going home. The Army and the rigs kept me away from my family for many many months at a time, and that is probably the best thing about working for SERVPRO is that I can be home with my family. I come to work knowing that I get to go home and that in it's self is a blessing. First and foremost is family and I absolutely love that about SERVPRO.

I am a Mitigation Specialist also a newer employee to the SERVPRO family. Being born and raised here in Mason County has given me great pride in my community. I was recently married and hope to raise a family right here in Ludington. The thing that I love so much about SERVPRO that when I go places people see my me, they place it as one of the people that helped get their home or place of business back in order. I enjoy helping people and just seeing that look of relief and satisfaction on their faces as they walk back into their home.

I am a Crew Chief for SERVPRO MLC. I have been with the company for about a year. I have been a licensed builder for over 28 years. I also have over 15 years in remodeling bathrooms to make them handicap accessible. Even though I haven't been with SERVPRO for all that long, it is quite obvious the type of company it is. This is a people driven company. There are no boundaries to make the customer absolutely 100% satisfied. I am proud to answer when someone asks me where I work because I know that it is followed up by a story about a job we did and how we did a great job and the customers were over joyed. That is the kind of place where I want to be.

I am an Office Assistant and have been with SERVPRO MLC for 3 years. I moved to the west side of the state in 2008 after having experienced just how beautiful the area was. I have two daughters who are 36 & 30 and 3 gorgeous grand babies that keep me very much on my toes. I have very diligently been working on obtaining my bachelors degree from Davenport University. Next to that, I spend most of my free time with my girls and grandchildren. What I like best about working with SERVPRO is simply put. I like helping people. It's truly rewarding when I can help a home or business owner get the help they need to get their homes back to their pre-loss condition and help ease the stress they are going through.

I am one of the Recon Carpenters at SERVPRO. I have been with the company for just over 2 1/2 years. I was born in Muskegon and moved to Manistee in 1976. My beautiful wife Stacey and I have two sons, Zachery and Jakob. We were over the moon excited to welcome our 1st grandson into the world in March of this year. I really enjoy remodeling and making over different things. I have spent much time doing that to my own home, making the curb appeal significantly different then when I moved in. My favorite part of working at SERVPRO is simple. I love helping our customers in their time of despair and need.
