Dr. Possai’s family is made up of his wife Kathleen, daughter Kayla, and son Kyle. They look forward to becoming involved in various activities in the community as they were in Thief River Falls. Dr. Possai is a USA Master Swimmer, avid biker and triathlete who says that, “moving to Grand Rapids is a lot like waking up in Heaven.” Kathleen loves to entertain, cook, crochet, travel and “is looking forward to meeting each and every person in the Grand Rapids area!” Kyle is entering his junior year at Grove City College in Pennsylvania where he’s studying biology and intends to pursue his masters in marine biology. Kayla loves to fish and “once she looked at a map of the Grand Rapids area, was the most enthusiastic 'yes' to relocating.” She will be a junior at Grand Rapids High School this year and plans to join the swim and golf teams. As a family, they enjoy being active outdoors and volunteering within the community.

Please help welcome the Possai family to Grand Itasca and Grand Rapids.
