Maupin is Family Support Center’s new executive director
Linda Maupin recently joined the Family Support Center of Barry County as the new executive director.
Her background includes 35 years in a business setting at the Kellogg Company, as well as five years in a nonprofit environment at the Gilmore Car Museum. She earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Nazareth College.
She has lived in the Delton area for more than 40 years and has been an active volunteer in both Calhoun and Barry counties. Most recently, she has served as board chair (since 2014) at the Barry County Community Mental Health Authority; as vice chair of the Barry County Chamber of Commerce and on the Delton Area Business Association team.
Maupin’s experience includes finance, legal compliance, human resource leadership, customer service, transportation, foreign trade and logistics. She is also a licensed U.S. Customs Broker, which provided great opportunities to work with diverse cultures and teams.
Outside of work, Maupin said she loves to spend time with her family (especially her four grandchildren and their friends) whether it’s a sports event or study time. She and her husband, Larry, love children of all ages, enjoy camping, playing with their adopted cat, traveling, watching college football, NASCAR and reading.
From a creative perspective, Maupin enjoys fused glass artwork and is a lifelong learner.
She said she feels “privileged to join the great staff of Karen Jousma, program director, and Jennifer Jarman, family educator and Kinship coordinator, at the Family Support Center of Barry County.”
