Through my jobs, I gained experience in property risk management, strategic planning and collaborating with people to assess problems and develop solutions to benefit the organization. Upon retiring in 2016, my husband Joe and I moved to Horseshoe Bay. I am active in multiple community service organizations through volunteering several years for the POA July 4th Children’s Activities and the 2020 Blood Pressure Screening and COVID-19 testing projects.
