Ministry might as well be Libby VanValin’s middle name because she lives to minister to others. As a Partner, Ministry Department Leader and the Humans Resources Manager of OLV Investment Group, Libby’s number one priority is to build-up the OLV team members. She does this through organizing employee events, charitable giving and projects, service projects, overseas mission’s trips, book/Bible studies, conducting hiring interviews, better understanding employee relationships through DISC personality exams and handling internal communications and paperwork.
Libby and her husband Jesse began working with Dean and Zan Oliver in 2006. The mentorship blossomed into a partnership, and OLV Investment Group was born in 2012. Libby’s kind-hearted nature led her to earn a Bachelor of Science in Health Education from the University of Michigan-Flint, and she uses that same caring personality to strengthen the OLV “family.”
Libby and Jesse have three spunky, bright girls (all born between 2008 and 2011). The girls’ love for animals led the family to build a coop in their yard, where they raise chickens. Libby is active in her daughters’ education and is the Vice Chair of Family Council Board at the Perry Innovation Center. When not ministering at work or home, Libby continues to minister at Bethany Baptist Church in Grand Blanc, MI where she is the Worship Team Leader and plays the keys each Sunday morning.
