Robert Baker

Robert Baker

Fall 2018-2019 cohort

Hello, everyone! I’m Robert Baker, and I live in West Chester, OH. I studied creative writing and biology at Bowling Green State University, graduating with my BFA in 2015. I researched careers that blend service and science, and I set my sights on studying to be a funeral director. I have no death-care experience outside of what I’m learning at CCMS, so I’m excited to work in the clinical lab to develop skills for the trade. As a writer, I constantly seek new experiences to generate poetry and stories. I also love Star Wars, sailing, and sea shanties! Email me with questions, or find me around the school. Memento mori!

My name is Matthew Dooley, and I am from a small town called Antwerp, in Northwest Ohio. I studied chemistry at Trine University in Angola, Indiana, and received my Associate of Science degree. I have a long history of funeral directing in my family, so it seemed fitting to end up at a school with an equally exciting history. I was very honored to be chosen as a lab assistant, and I look forward to the experiences it will bring. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have; I am always happy to help.

Hello, everyone! My name is Markie Mappes and I currently live in the surrounding area of Batesville, Indiana.

Alex Sweet 

Spring 2019-2020 cohort

Hello everybody, my name is Alex Sweet. I was born and raised close by in the town of Milford. My biggest hobby I have is being a good father, and loving husband.

I bounced around majors for awhile until I discovered my true passion, mortuary science. I have had experience in the field before coming to CCMS to prepare me for the challenges to come. I'm proud to attend such a great school and honored to be a lab assistant. If you ever need anything at all, I would be more than happy to help!
