Parkview – VP/Facilities Planning, Design & Construction

Year Joined Fort Wayne Trails Board: 2018

Why Did You Join the Fort Wayne Trails Board?

With Parkview’s focus on the well-being of our community, I have a personal interest in connecting our medical campuses with the local trails system. My son and I spend many evenings on the trails around the Parkview Regional Medical Center campus. As I have traveled to other communities, I have been drawn to those that have very visible, well designed and accessible trails, and believe that the continued development of our trail system will add to the ability of local employers to attract top talent to the Fort Wayne area.

What Does our Trail System Mean to You?

A regular opportunity to disconnect from the digital world and instead connect with nature, friends and family.

How Do You Use the Trails the Most?

Walking and Jogging.

What Excites You Most About FWT’s Mission?

The focus on working with others to make positive change in our community. A lot has been accomplished – it has taken the efforts of many individuals and organizations working together consistently and passionately toward a common goal.

What Do You Want People To Know About Fort Wayne Trails?

FWT’s leadership is passionate about trail safety and accessibility. As someone who walks the trails often along with a family member who is in a wheelchair, this is greatly appreciated.

Join us for the 11th Annual Pufferbelly Run, Walk, and Stroll, NOW WITH A VIRTUAL OPTION!

We are excited to announce that after careful consideration, we have determined that we can move forward with the 2020 Pufferbelly Run/Walk/Stroll IN-PERSON. While following the Governors guidelines and CDC recommendations, we will still provide a fun and safe event for all of you. Of course, your safety is paramount and as we get closer to July 18th, if we feel we cannot provide you with a rewarding and safe experience we will make any necessary changes. Keep in mind that in addition to a fun morning on the trails, every registration goes directly to supporting trail growth and development right here in our city. We thank you all for using and supporting Fort Wayne Trails.
