Head of Maintenance
My journey in the maintenance department started in 1998 the summer after I graduated High School, I began working part time. During this time I joined the Air Force, I went to Basic Training then returned home and continued to work part time at OLQP while going to College at MATC. In 2003 I was asked if I would like to work full time along side the former head of maintenance, it was at that time he started grooming me to take his position. I served for 13 years in the Air Force with the 128th Air Refuiling Wing out of Milwaukee. I received an Associates Degree from Milwaukee Area Technical College in Police Science and recently obtained a Bacholers Degree in Business Administration from Cardinal Stritch.
I would like to say that OLQP has always supported me and my Service to the country. After September 11, 2001 I was placed on Active Duty for Several years, and then again in 2008 when I deployed to Afghanistan, the parish and school supported me when I needed the time off to fulfill my military obligations. I knew from the day that I started at OLQP that this was very much a family atmosphere but it was proven to me time and time again when I needed the time off. You do not find this in every work place and for that I am grateful.
I take immense pride in maintaining Our Lady Queen of Peace School and Church. It is not always an easy task to maintain 4 buildings and all the outside property. The summers in the maintenance department are the most demanding trying to prepare for the up coming school year along with all of the other normal day to day tasks that need to be accomplished.
The shiney floors, squeaky clean windows, beautiful church and all the outdoor landscaping would not be possible without the help of my staff. I can not say how much I appreciate the staff I have working with me and the great relationship that we have all built over the years.
If you see my staff around the buildings please take the opportunity to thank Debbie, Chris, Kathy, Nicole and David for their hardwork and dedication to OLQP.
