Michael Zelenak

I was born, and raised in northwestern Pennsylvania. After high school, I lived in many places in the U.S. – Idaho, Wisconsin, Texas, Arizona – before settling down in rural Iowa. From 1971 to 1973, I lived in southern Arizona, and worked at the ASARCO mine. During this time, I met my wife-to-be, Cindy. We moved away in a different pursuit, but always knew we would return to Arizona. With a conviction that I should give undivided attention to the world’s bestselling book of all time, in 1977, I attended East Texas Bible College in Tyler, Texas, graduating in 1979.

I am an accomplished pipe fitter/welder, preparing bid packages, and developed and managed the QA/QC program for a large mechanical contractor in construction of a major Bio-Pharmaceutical production facilities. I have also been employed in various nuclear, natural gas, and coal fired power plants in Minnesota, Iowa and Illinois. I have served one term on my hometown City Council, and as Secretary/Treasurer of Local 405 in Mason City, Iowa.

I enjoy recreational activities such as softball, football, and basketball. I am certified as an official for high school level football and basketball for over twenty years in Texas, Wisconsin, and Iowa.

My husband Don and I have been fulltime residents of Green Valley for 12 years. We moved here from Michigan and have lived the last 9 years in Green Valley Townhouse VI. I have a dual associates degree in accounting and data processing. I worked for a major insurance company for 18 years as a systems analyst and project manager. We have 2 daughters and 4 grandsons. Since moving to Green Valley I have served as the secretary of our HOA, as our HOA Representative on the GVC and as an officer in the GVR Pickleball Club for four years. Since joining the Board I have served on the Planning & Evaluation committee and the Board Affairs committee. My favorite GVR pasttime is pickleball and just enjoying the great friends I have made in the neighborhood and in my GVR activities. I love the diversity of what GVR offers its members. I am intrigued by the uniqueness of GVR and the Green Valley community – we are in unincorporated Pima County – but over the years a support system has been developed by the HOA’s, GVC, GVR and other volunteer groups to make this a very special place.

My husband and I moved to Green Valley as full time residents in 2015 from the Chicago area. I have a BA in Theology and my professional background includes working with the Mayor of Indianapolis as liaison with staff, media, and community leaders. I also worked for the Chamber of Commerce, dealing with business & community leaders throughout the Detroit area. Additionally, we had our own energy renewable company before retiring in 2013. We originally came to Green Valley for a short stay, but quickly decided to make Green Valley our retirement home after visiting several GVR facilities and realizing how many wonderful opportunities are available to us as members with all of its sport activities, classes, clubs & concerts. I am currently the Chair of the Nominations & Elections Committee, and one of my objectives is to encourage more of our members to participate in the election process. I am honored to be serving the GVR membership as a Director of the Board. Thank you.

I grew up in small town central Iowa on a farm. After graduating business school I married and we moved around the country a bit with corporate transfers: OKC, Detroit, OKC again, Dallas, eastern Iowa, Syracuse and finally Apple Valley, MN where we raised our two children.

I spent many years working for a school district as a special education secretary and the last nearly 20 years of my working career as Vice President, Series 7 licensed Sales Associate for an Investment Firm.

I was widowed fairly young but luckily found someone wonderful again to share my life with. We share seven grandchildren between us. When John and I retired we decided to sell our city homes and retire to our cabin in north central Minnesota where we thought we were going to live year round. I soon decided I wanted to live someplace I could go for long walks in the winter without fear of falling on ice, thus began our search for a second home someplace warmer. John and I searched around the country before we finally settled on Green Valley when we were lucky enough to rent a friends new home because they were willing to let us bring our big beautiful German Shepard, Boomer. We bought a home here in 2017. Our choice was strongly influenced by everything GVR had to offer, especially the woodshop.

I enjoy spending time reading, puzzling, playing cards, biking, hiking especially with John, friends & Boomer. I just discovered I have the ability to paddle board, what fun! Maybe I can even do that here in AZ. I have joined Amigas & hope to join or experience many other clubs.

I decided to run for the Board of Directors because I thought everything GVR has to offer is too important to our lifestyle here to lose. We must do everything we can to keep GVR exceptional and affordable.
