I have been a resident of Custer Township for 32 years.  I worked for Mancelona Public Schools for 19 years focusing on reading support for kindergarten through 4th grade students. I retired from the school system in 2013. I am very organized and detail orientated.
I have served on the Custer Township Board as a Trustee for the past 17 years and been involved in all aspects of the Board’s decisions. As Supervisor I hope to establish better communications with the Township residents and promote resident involvement in our local government.
