What do you love about your job?     AFTER HAVING SPENT MY LAST 20 YEARS IN THE GOLF COURSE INDUSTRY IN THE SURROUNDING AREA,  I TRULY LOOK FORWARD TO THE OPPORTUNITY TO WORK WITH THE PASSIONATE PROFESSIONALS THAT MAKE UP THE STAFF HERE AT THE FINDLAY YMCA.  THERE IS NOTHING BETTER THAN WORKING WITH A DEDICATED TEAM COMMITTED TO ACHIEVING A SYNERGISTIC GOAL

What’s something you want people to know about our YMCA?   IT DOESN’T TAKE LONG TO REALIZE HOW DIVERSE A COMMUNITY THAT WE LIVE IN HERE IN FINDLAY AND THE SURROUNDING COMMUNITIES,  LIKEWISE IT’LL ONLY TAKE A FEW VISITS TO THE FINDLAY YMCA TO SEE THAT THIS VENUE IS NOTHING SHORT OF A MELTING POT FOR THIS COMMUNITY.  NO MATTER YOUR AGE OR FINANCIAL SITUATION THERE IS CERTAINLY A PLACE FOR ALL AT THE FINDLAY YMCA.

YMCA Goals  MY PRIMARY GOAL AS THE FACILITIES DIRECTOR AT THE FINDLAY YMCA IS TO MAKE THIS FACILITY THE MOST EFFICIENT OPERATION THAT IT CAN BE WHILE BEING ATTENTIVE TO MEMBER AND FACILITY INTERESTS

Personal Information … Family … Hobbies?  HAVING SPENT MY FORMATIVE AND PROFESSIONAL CAREER ENTIRELY IN THE AREA (38+YEARS)- I AM A FINDLAY GUY AND FEEL I HAVE A GOOD SENSE OF WHAT MAKES OUR COMMUNITY TICK.  MY WIFE OF 22 YEARS (LYNN) AND I HAVE TWO CHILDREN: ALLISON (19) IS A FRESHMAN AT THE UNIVERSITY OF CINCINNATI AND MITCHELL (16) IS A JUNIOR AT FINDLAY HIGH SCHOOL.  BOTH CHILDREN ARE ALSO GRADUATES OF FINDLAY ST.
