    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 have been 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 was born and raised here in the greater Grand Rapids area and attended Kenowa Hills High School. From there, I went on to earn my Bachelor’s Degree in both History and Philosophy from Grand Valley State University. I have always had an affinity for European vehicles, and my first car was a 1996 Land Rover Discovery. My other passion is music, I have an extensive vinyl record collection and play drums. In my free time I enjoy hiking, disc golf, traveling, and exploring downtown Grand Rapids.

    Hi, my name is Ross. I was born in San Diego, California. I have lived all over the United States, but consider Grand Rapids, Michigan to be my home. I graduated from Grandville High School.

    My father worked at SHARPE in the 80’s, and while that didn’t bring me to work at SHARPE, it’s absolutely something of a “small world” thing!!

    I look forward to working with you!!

    Marketing Specialist

    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!
