I grew up in Southern California, moved to SaddleBrooke Ranch, and joined CCSB in 2012. In 1968, I married Dale and became a step-mom to three great kids. That small family has now grown to include 8 grandchildren and 18 great grandkids. A 40-year career in commercial real estate offered many challenges. In order to carve out a little down time, Dale and I secured a pilot license, purchased a Cessna, and spent many weekends searching for golf courses to conquer! In my former church, I served as Women’s Ministry Director and as Secretary on our church Board. CCSB has allowed me the opportunity to serve on the Women’s Council, In Touch Ministry, and our Board of Directors.

Retiring and moving to SaddleBrooke has been the biggest part of my Christian Journey during my lifetime. I was able to tackle elements in my life that I couldn’t before. Shortly after moving here, I became involved with “Christian Women's” (Stonecroft) monthly luncheons. Because I coordinated luncheons, I was asked to consider a job with the HOA where I was involved with the theater (currently theater manager). We also changed Churches and started attending CCSB (member for 11 years). I became Head of the Usher Committee, started attending Bible Studies (became a leader), and joined the Nominating Committee (became Chair), and now a member of the Church Board. The progression through both my Church and Theater have impacted by life.
