Chief Operating Officer
Mrs. Noorman leads WMPC’s daily programmatic operations while ensuring close collaboration with our partner agencies.

In that role, she increased Wellspring’s statewide budget for foster care by 20 percent and developed its Grand Rapids foster care program from a staff of five to 39.
For the four years prior to WMPC’s launch, Noorman closely collaborated with key stakeholders that orchestrated WMPC’s inception, assuming a leadership role to develop many of WMPC’s draft policies, procedures, and processes. Mrs. Noorman is well-respected in Kent County and throughout Michigan for her expertise in administering trauma-informed foster care programs and for her commitment to excellence.
