Meet the Board of Directors
I began my business and co-op career in 1974 as a member of Nature’s Bakery coop in Madison, Wisc. In 1976, along with my wife, Kate, we opened a macrobiotic organic foods restaurant and bakery and operated them until 1990 when we moved to Pensacola. I started a carpet cleaning company here in Pensacola, Pro Clean Restoration and Cleaning, which I continue to own and operate. My wife and I (and our daughter and now son-in-law and grandchildren) have been eating a macrobiotic diet since 1974 and love the fact that we can purchase all the necessary food to maintain that diet at Ever’man. As a board member, my desire is to see the store run as efficiently as possible in order to have the lowest prices, the most pleasant atmosphere and the happiest employees. I also would like to see Ever’man lead the way in educating the community about the benefits of eating organic foods.
I’ve been privileged to serve on the Ever’man Board of Directors for the last three years. In that time, I’ve learned how to best work on a cooperative board and the dedication it takes to align decision making with both our Ends Statement and the seven cooperative principles. I’m proud to be a part of Ever’mans’ vital health and wellness work in the community and to continue in my role as a director. I have been interested in healthy living for over 25 years and I love the fact that Ever’man is a trusted source for those looking to eat wholesome, nutritious food and learn new skills for developing a healthy mind, body and spirit. For the past ten years, I have led the creative team of a local publishing company. This experience has helped me to hone my leadership and organizational skills and has given me a broad understanding of our community as a whole, as well as the opportunity to develop valuable contacts at all levels of local government and industry. My daughter and I shop at Ever’man daily and we love the sense of community offered by our local cooperative and the friendly, knowledgeable staff.
It has been my privilege to serve on the Ever’man Board of Directors for the past six years. I am a native Pensacolian and lifetime member of Ever’man. I love this area and have a commitment to see our community thrive, especially in the areas of health and wellness. My long-time experience as a member, teacher, business owner, retreat presenter and leader in the local health and wellness community gives me a unique insight into the needs of the Ever’man community. I have studied and applied many whole food and wellness principles to create a healthy lifestyle for myself, my family, my many students and business clients. My year of experience in the field of health and wellness is a valuable asset to the Ever’man Board. I am honored and thrilled to continue to serve on the Ever’man board!
