Carl has done and seen it all. After spending 13 years juggling being a math teacher, basketball and tennis coach, and serving as a Merrill Lynch investment advisor for 34 years, he decided to drop it all and serve on the Wellspring board.
Carl has always had a passion for others, so when the opportunity to work with Wellspring arose he was quick to respond to God’s calling. Carl found a specific passion for Wellspring after realizing that we are all called to follow Christ’s example and take care of others. Carl knew this all started by providing the most basic element of life, clean water. After two vision trips to Africa, Carl finds renewed passion for his work. Carl works to be part of the solution to the poverty crisis the world faces today.
Carl currently lives in Park Rapids with his wife Carol. They have three daughters and nine grandchildren, all of which keep Carl on his toes.
