I started out in the boat business when I purchased my first boat back in 1970.. I went to work for Omaha Marina at that time, and from there I went on to work for Fairway Marine. In 1978, I started Marine Service Specialists and continued my business for 30 years. In 2008, I closed my business and worked at Cabela's for 1 year. In 2009, I came to work at Valley Marine as Service Manager. I worked here until early 2011, when I went to work for MerCruiser Marine in Fond du Lac, WI. In 2014, Andy called and asked if I would return to Valley Marine. I accepted his offer and in September of that year I was back heading up our service department. I became a Certified Mercury Technician in 1976, and in 1977, I became a certified MerCruiser Technician. I have maintained my certification in both ever since. In 2007, I became a Master BRP (OMC) Technician. In 2012, I became a MerCruiser Master Technician. When I am not at work, I love playing with my granddaughters. I am also looking forward to our third grandchild due soon.
