Dan Toperosky moved to the Ferndale area two years ago to take the Health Safety and Environmental Manager job at Phillips 66 refinery. He is originally from Central Alberta, Canada, but spent the previous 17 year on the Gulf Coast in the communities south of Houston.
Toperosky took the position as Ferndale Chamber Board Member about 18 months ago.
“It has provided me an opportunity to give back to the community we moved into and learn a great deal about Ferndale and the county,” Toperosky said.
Each year, Toperosky is heavily involved with running the Ferndale Street Festival’s Phillips 66 Beer/Tent Garden and he looks forward to his third year under the tent this August.
In his free time, Toperosky enjoys playing with his two 11 year old kids.
“We are getting out and taking advantage of the opportunities this area provides and my wife and I have been trying to teach my kids to ski, fish, hike and bike. One of my bucket list goals is to visit all the National Parks, and was able to visit three in the last year,” Toperosky said.
