A lifetime commitment to service.

Serving our country as an Air Force chaplain honed my listening skills, developed my intuitive abilities, and allowed me to help many people with challenging life issues. I bring this same wisdom, compassion and caring to my business and volunteer activities. I am passionate about being part of the solution, about creating the good that I want to see in my community, and about making a positive improvement in the lives of people around me. I am driven by my sense of duty fostered by my service to my country, and my family who has served in the military for generations. 

I was very close with my grandmother when I was growing up. She served as a nurse in the Army during World War II.  After marrying my grandfather, who was also in the Army, she raised her family all over the world. Her care for her family, her service to her country, her commitment to her church, were all deeply inspiring to me. My military family, past and present, and the military communities I have been so fortunate to be a part of have been a huge influence on me my entire life. When there is important work to do, we step up to get it done. 

As a military family, we’ve had the pleasure of living in communities across the US and Europe, but it was Park City that we chose as our permanent home when we first arrived in 2009. This place has my heart. I have served the local community in a variety of volunteer roles: as the current Post Commander American Legion Post 14, as a DJ on KPCW, as the former chair of the Summit County Democratic Party, as a former board member of the League of Women Voters, and as a volunteer with Voterise. Nationally, I have served as a board member for the spouse advisory council for the Military Officers Association of America.

I will bring the skill, leadership, experience, and values I have developed in my decades of experience serving diverse communities and organizations to the Park City School Board. Great schools equal a great community.
