Erik grew up in Norton Shores and now lives in Fruitport. He spent 22 years working in retail where he learned the importance of customer service. That experience helps him be able to relate to customers and be able to actively listen to what they need and present them with the insurance coverage they need. In 2010, through a mutual friend, God brought Christy into Erik’s life. They were married 19 months later. They are blessed with two children and waiting to see how many more God will bless them with. He is a member of Sheridan Drive Baptist Church. He enjoys going to movies, playing games, and doing martial arts but his favorite past time is spending time with his family.
