Ben was looking for a change of pace in his day-to-day life when he became a driver for West Bloomfield Parks in 2015. Prior to coming to West Bloomfield Parks, he worked in the medical field and as a combat medic for the military. He also volunteered with the Waterford Fire Department. One of his favorite aspects of his position is the opportunity to focus on helping others, specifically seniors. During work, Ben works with the seniors in our community, allowing them to lead independent and normal lives. He chaperones different adventures and trips, takes care of the WB Parks vehicles, makes phone calls and books transportation appointments. When off-the-clock, Ben enjoys camping, volunteering with the Michigan Bikers Helping Veterans and Operation Good Cheer, riding his motorcycle, mountain biking and hiking.
Favorite thing about nature:
The quiet. The world has gotten loud and gotten itself in a big hurry. Off in the woods, you can be separated from that, and it helps calm and put things back into perspective.
