In the years to come my sister and I will be the fourth generation of R.N. Smith to run the family business. It has always been our hopes and dreams to run the family business like our father does today.

I graduated from William V. Fisher Catholic High School in 2006. After graduation I attended Ferris State University to get a better understanding on the HVACR ( Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning, and Refrigeration) industry. I attended Ferris State for two years and graduated in the summer of 2008 with an associates degree in HVACR.

I have enjoyed working at R.N. Smith for the past 14 years. My duties along the way have been from stock boy to installer. Currently, I am a service technician/Sales Rep, computer support person and Treasurer of R.N. Smith. One of the advantages of working here is the experience I have meeting new people, fixing their problems and making them happy at the end of the call. Everyday is different and never boring around R.N. Smith.
