RESUME FOR VELLA K. REIMAN
Vella Kay Reiman
21283 Alpine Drive
Lawrenceburg, Indiana 47025
Hello, as stated above, I'm Vella Reiman. My husband, Wayne, and I reside here in Hidden Valley on Alpine Drive where we own 2 adjoining lots. We have lived in HVL for 2 years now. We have 2 grown children, a Daughter, Michelle and son, Matthew. We are the proud grandparents of 7 grandchildren ranging from 14 years to 1 month.
A little about myself: I was born to Mike and Barbara Westrich and raised in Bright, IN living on Georgetown Rd. I attended Bright Grade School and Graduated from North Dearborn High School. Wayne and I enjoy attending Bright Christian Church.
I have worked outside of the home until my retirement 5 years ago. I've been a dental assistant, and an office assistant but the last 30 years I spent as blue collar worker at Campbell Hausfeld, Harrison, Ohio. When I first started I was a Machinist, where I became a member of the International Association of Machinist and Aerospace Workers. What can I say, seeing the things I witnessed and experienced I became a Union steward, then onto committee chairperson. I also was a officer at our Local Lodge for 20 some years. As the years went by my interest in the working of Union and Management grew. I furthered my education thru the IAMAW attending their Leadership Training Center in Placid Harbor, Md. There I received my degrees in Negotiating, Leadership 1, 2 and 3. I then became the candidate to become" Train the trainer". I enjoyed being a part of the union movement, which the true meaning of union leadership is "giving of ones self for another." I also furthered my education thru the union by becoming affiliated with the Ohio State AFL-CIO. I spent 25 years representing the employees of Campbell Hausfeld ( Scott Fetzer) in their workmen compensation claims. I furnished the IAMAW member with a no cost representative to get them thru the process with the Industrial Commission of Ohio.
Over the years I have volunteered for many organizations: i.e. Heart, Cancer, MS. (fund raising)
I am a people person. I enjoy helping People. Since my residence here in HVL I have enjoyed meeting people from the valley by becoming a member of the "Safety and Elections Committee.” I've been active on this committee for a year or more. I gladly assisted Linda Estes and other members of this committee with the HVL Drug Awareness Program. I also attend the POA Board meetings each month, to hear the issues involving our community. I'm a true believer that each and every Property Owner has a say for the decisions made for this community and the right to be heard and vote on such.
I feel I would be a asset to your HVL POA Board. I feel HVL needs leadership that will listen to the people, work with the other committees, officials, and personnel and work to keep HVL up to the standards the Property Owners expect and deserve.
Thank you for taking your time to read my resume.
