This is Lois’ first year in the Kayak Rental business after a career in sales, marketing, sales management & all the lessons of life!  She is passionate about kayaking after taking her first trip from D Ave. to Plainwell and from Plainwell to Otsego only a few years ago.  Since then, she has kayaked in various Michigan lakes and rivers.

 

“We have such a beautiful clean resource in the Kalamazoo River and I want people to enjoy it as much as I do”.  Our goal is to make kayaking easy for you!

 

Emily is a Senior at Western Michigan University.  She is planning to graduate at the end of the summer.  Emily is responsible for developing the marketing and social media platform for the company.  Emily will also be key in daily operations which means loading and unloading kayaks and all that that entails.

 

We also hope to hire some local High School students to help us develop the business in Plainwell.  Creating opportunities for the local students to work is also a passion and a dream for Lois; who herself found her career working summer jobs in during high school and college.

 

We will strive to develop a business that is safe, affordable, dependable, and of course fun to deal with.  We welcome your suggestions as we hone the operations of the Plainwell Kayak Company.
