    I have been employed at Sharpe since January of 1997.  I was born in Pennsylvania, grew up in Ohio, served in the US. Army after graduation, and lived in Michigan for the past 24 years since leaving the military.  I started at Sharpe as a new Buick salesperson in 1997, moved to MINI sales in 2008, and have served as the General Sales manager of Sharpe for the past 6 years.  I live in Rockford with my wife Erin, and our 3 children Alison, Charlie, and Brennan.  In my free time I enjoy watching my children compete in sports, traveling, and reading.  I look forward to the opportunity to help with all of your automotive needs!

    I started with SHARPE in 2020 but have been in the industry since 2010. I am originally from Pennsylvania, but have been calling West Michigan my home for the last 12 years. While working at SHARPE I met and married my husband who happened to be the superintendent on the remodeling project that was in progress, thank you SHARPE!!

    I am so proud to be a part of launching the BDC at SHARPE. I am so invested in this department and honored to be the BDC manager. The future only looks brighter for the BDC department!

    I have been here at Sharpe for 12+ years, specifically since the MINI Coopers arrived in Grand Rapids. I am originally from Grand Rapids, however I did live near Traverse City for a few years. When I am not here I enjoy everything outdoors especially travelling both domestic and internationally. Some of my hobbies include hiking, biking, adventure motorcycle trips and off-roading. In the future I plan to continue travel to countries and States that I have not been to yet.

    I’ve been employed at Sharpe since 2017. I’m originally from New York State and moved around the country; California, Texas, NY again and Michigan. I served in the US Marine Corps Reserves during Desert Storm spending time in the Philippines and Okinawa, Japan while attending Eastern Michigan University where I earned a B.S. in Industrial Distribution and minor in Marketing. I’ve enjoyed several careers including law enforcement, public insurance adjusting, and contracting MDU cable agreements for Comcast. I had a desire to move to West Michigan to enjoy the lake shore, hiking, camping, exercise, anything paranormal/metaphysical and time with friends. I’m glad to be a part of the Sharpe team.

    Events Coordinator

    I have been employed at Sharpe since August of 2022. I was born in Jenison, Michigan. I graduated from Jenison High School in 2014, where I then went on to Grand Valley State University to run hurdles on their Track and Field Team. After college I was in the bar/restaurant industry for 8 years. Spring of 2022 I started Coaching Track and Field Sprints at East Kentwood High School. While coaching, I was volunteering for the Special Olympics where I was asked if I have ever given thought about working in the automotive industry. Four weeks later, here I am at Sharpe as their Marketing Specialist and Events Coordinator!

    In my free time I love to play all sports (Gus Mackers are my favorite), take my dog Wrigley (Yes, I am a Cubbies fan) to the beach and coach basketball and track.

    I take great pride in what I do, and look forward to potentially working on things with you!
