Business

“I serve as NAWBO’s database and technology director. I manage NAWBO’s database, accounting, chapter committee records, event managment and communications within our association management software (AMS) and assist with keeping www.nawbo.org up to date. I also work closely with staff members on projects that would need implementation and fulfillment through our AMS.”

“I enjoy working with chapter leaders, especially when they have issues regarding data and membership management, brainstorming to come up with solutions to issues that they are having so that they can get back to the business of running their business and spend less time managing their NAWBO chapter. There are many talented and amazing NAWBO chapter leaders all across the country, and it is a great pleasure to work with them.”

Lifestyle

“I’m not afraid to learn anything new and find that this has helped me in many aspects of my career. I jokingly tell others, ‘I’m a jack of all trades and a master of some.’ I think this outlook has had a positive effect on my life. I giggle every time one of my sons comes up to me and asks me something about technology or how to fix something on one of their hotrods. They say, ‘How do you know that?’ I ride a motorcycle, am a passionate gardener, enjoy hiking in our local mountains and love animals. My husband, David, and I have been married for 34 years, and we have two sons, Sean and Patrick. Sean is following in mom’s footsteps and working on his CPA; Patrick followed in dad’s footsteps and works for Global Exposition Services.”

“My secret to balancing work and life is gardening and taking our dogs on walks, swimming or just playing Frisbee with them. It makes such a big difference in my day if I just stop for half an hour and then come back to something I was working on.”

Community

“We have helped eight boys who were having problems at home and provided them with a safe home while we worked with their parents to help resolve the problems they were facing. All of them now have great relationships that are open and honest with their parents and siblings. Sometimes people just need someone to listen to them who isn’t directly involved to help guide them on what they can do to help themselves and their family members.”
