Why I'm in Rotary:
My nature has always been a very giving person and when I was asked to join this amazing group of people, I was honored. My Rotary moment was being a counselor at RYLA for sure, and many other projects as well such as the Dental Project. As you can see, I like to make a difference!

What people don't know about me:
I have a definite drive to succeed and please people. I have walked the “3-Day” 60 mile Susan G. Komen Cancer walk for 3 years in San Diego - That’s over 180 miles plus training and earned over $15,000 toward BEATING cancer!

Strange, but true:
I was once challenged when I told someone that I wanted to be a cheerleader at Moorpark College. I was told, “You have NEVER been a cheerleader, Really??”. Well, Guess what, I Made It!! Keep in mind that in High School, I was always active in Drill Team and gymnastics. 

Passions, hobbies, interests:
Camping, walking and time with family and friends…

What I'm really good at:
My Career of 40 years!
Most embarrassing moment:
Doing the Guest List at Rotary when I was a newer Rotarian!!! Maybe Greg Hartman would like to explain…. Love Ya Greg! :-)
