Meet our Board of Directors
Mark Schuler, Co-Founder
My early years were spent growing up on a farm near Munich, ND. Farming was the way of life there. While I still enjoyed helping others farm, I just wanted to do something different. In 1983 Susan and I were married and decided to move out to California to explore the opportunities. I accepted a job in Northern California and that’s where we lived for most of 23 years. In 2006 we relocated to Las Vegas and lived there until the spring of 2019. We currently live in the Glenwood, MN area and are very active in the Wood-n-Hearts 501 (c) (3) Charity that we founded in 2019. We have a son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter who live close to us and light up our lives. I still enjoy hunting, fishing and the competition of sports.
Susan Schuler, Co-Founder
I grew up on a farm East of Munich, ND. In 1983 I married Mark Schuler and we moved to Merced, California to start our working careers. In 1987 we moved to Fresno, California and in 1988 our son Brandon was born and has forever changed our lives. I spent several years being a housewife and mother and enjoyed it very much. A few years later we moved to Sonora, California in the Sierra Nevada mountains. We enjoyed the new area and loved the new scenery. In 2005 I started working for the same company that Mark works for today and we have both been there ever since. We moved to Las Vegas in 2006 and lived there until last year when we made the move to Glenwood, MN. This move was exactly what I needed. I value a simpler life and I am closer to my family and friends. I enjoy traveling, cooking and lots of time being a Grandmother. In 2019, Mark and I co-founded Wood-n-Hearts 501 (c) (3) charity and are enjoying the pleasure of helping our Veterans.
Butch Schuler, Director
I grew up on a farm in Munich, ND where I learned the occupation of farming. In 1968 I was drafted into the US Army and went through basic training in Ft. Lewis, Washington and AIT in Ft. Ord, California. In January of 1969 I was deployed overseas to serve our country in Viet Nam and completed my service after serving two years. When I was serving in Viet Nam our first son Kevin was born. After I returned home, we bought a farm in the Munich, ND area where I farmed and built cabinets on the side for 15 years. My family and I moved to Grand Forks, ND in 1985 where I worked for various companies in the woodworking industry. The University of North Dakota hired me to work in their cabinet shop and was later promoted to maintenance supervisor of the new Ralph Engelstad Arena. I have since retired from the University of North Dakota while still staying active building cabinets and other woodworking projects.
