Personal:

  • I have lived in Oaks North since 2008. Prior to that, I lived in Poway, where my children graduated from Poway High. I am happy here and excited to give back to my community. I have acquired a travel bug and I have been lucky enough to travel to over 12 countries in the last two years. It is my goal to continue, I have more places I want to visit.
  • Hanna Rose, my companion dog, and I can be seen walking in the neighborhood daily.
  • My greatest accomplishment is raising 3 amazing young men, who are all married to wonderful women, and who have given me grandchildren. My boys and their wives are in life careers that give back to our world. I couldn't be prouder.
