On Site Manager
Battle Creek, Michigan | Staffing

I am an Account Manager and On-Site Manager for our Staffing Team in Battle Creek. As an On-Site Manager, I travel to one of our client’s sites to work directly with their manufacturing workforce. I started working at AccessPoint in 2016 as an Account Manager in our Kalamazoo office.

Prior to AccessPoint, I pursued a career in education. I worked as a substitute teacher for several years and I enjoy working with at-risk youth. I was the After School Program Director, and eventually Executive Director, for Three Rivers Area Mentoring (TRAM).

When I have time, I spend it working with people and volunteering. I have been a server and bartender for over 20 years and still continue today because I love to talk to our regulars and meet new people. I am also the Vice President for the Kalamazoo chapter of the Michigan Jaycees or Junior Chamber International (JCI). We are a young person’s organization committed to building leaders and creating positive change in our communities.

When I am not working or volunteering, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our four cats.
