I love the opportunity in Goshen.
Not only career driven opportunities, but also a cultural environment that is desired to raise a family. Goshen is a socially viable city and is great for relationship-building. We are a community that finds ways to help those in need.
I have lived in Goshen since 2002. My wife, Colleen, and I are in our 14th year of marriage. We have two sons and a daughter - Eddie (9), Annabelle (8) and Joseph (7). Our children attend Elkhart Christian Academy with their older and younger cousins. We have two cats, one adopted named Hazel who doesn't have her tail, and one feisty young male named Shy that we found under grandma's patio and has adopted Annabelle. We also have several koi and a catfish in our outdoor pond in the front yard.
I went to Ft. Wayne Snider High School, which tends to face Penn in each fall sectional football game for rights to continue on to state. I then went to Purdue University, West Lafayette and graduated with a Bachelor's degree in science/ agriculture. Colleen and I also met at Purdue.
Currently I work for Lippert Interiors which is a RV furniture and mattress supplier. It is an exciting opportunity to be part of the Interiors team, knowing that the innovative approach we take fulfills customer demands of quality and design.
I understand how hard the local community works to take advantage of the opportunities the Goshen area provides, and how committed the community is to family and culture.
