Millwright Asbestos Worker, Michigan State Utility Workers Council Safety Culture Team Member representing Generation
Yrs of Service: 17yrs.
Dan has been in the Utility Industry since graduating from high school in 1995. It was through that initial summer job, painting the turbine shrouds at Palisades Nuclear Plant, where Dan’s Safety Journey began. Not only was he introduced to what safety looked like in the workplace but he found a job that he knew could start his career.
In 2002, Dan jumped back into generation at one of Consumers Energy’s Fossil Fuel plants. It was at this coal fired power plant where Dan found his roots and began his role as a Safety Champion for Consumers Energy. In his 15 year career at the JH Campbell Plant, Dan has held many roles from Laborer to Millwright to co-chair of his Local Safety Committee. In connection with these roles, Dan has been certified as a Utility Safety Professional.
As a proud Executive Board member of the Utility Workers Union of America Local 388, Dan has had the honor and privilege to serve as the co-chair of the Safety Culture Team representing generation for the last 3 years. In this capacity, Dan and his team have worked relentlessly to empower ALL employees at Consumers Energy by inspiring and motivating individuals in hopes of changing hearts and minds to send everyone home safely each and every day.
Dan spends his free time enjoying his family, which includes his wife Kristen of 14 years and their two children Dylan (10) and Evelyn (9 months). Yes, Evelyn was planned! If Dan isn’t coaching youth sports, especially basketball, you can find him yelling at a TV watching the Michigan State University Spartans, a school he attended from 1998 -2001. GO GREEN!
