State Rep. Angela Witwer is serving her first term representing the 71st House District, which includes much of Eaton County and the cities of the cities of Charlotte, Olivet, Potterville, Grand Ledge, parts of Lansing, as well as the townships of Bellevue, Benton, Carmel, Chester, Delta Charter Eaton Rapids, Kalamo, Oneida Charter, Roxand, Sunfield, Vermontville, Walton, and Windsor Charter. An alumnus of Waverly Community Schools, Witwer went on to receive her bachelor’s degree in business and marketing from Northwood University.
Witwer began her professional career in clinical health care, working first in Sparrow Hospital’s burn unit and later as the manager of pediatric rehabilitation. This desire to help others, coupled with her clinical expertise, propelled her to become manager of Sparrow’s community relations and marketing department.
After 22 years working in health care, Witwer left Sparrow in 2007 to co-found Edge Partnerships, an award-winning public relations, marketing and advocacy group. During this time, she was a strong advocate for quality public education and community engagement, serving as the vice president of Waverly Community Schools’ Board of Education and was an active member of the Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce Economic Club committee, and the Wharton Center for Performing Arts Advisory Council and the McLaren Greater Lansing Foundation Board of Directors.
Witwer lives in Delta Township with her husband Bruce and enjoys spending time with her two children and four granddaughters.
