I was born and raised in Washington, DC. I came to Colorado to attend CU Boulder in the 70’s and forgot to ever go home! Married to Steve for 33 years, we have 5 children, 3 of whom we adopted from India and The Philippines. Prior to having kids, I worked as a dental assistant, office manager and a probation officer. I have served on various Boards from our Homeowners’ Association, to Colorado Wildlife Coalition to Westfield Pool. Of course, with 5 kids raised in Poudre School District, I have been Room Mother/Team Mom/Team Parent for countless teams over the years. Recently, I worked part-time in a small law office for about 10 years. With our youngest a sophomore at Montana State, I am excited to be able to focus my energies on Meals on Wheels and the wonderful service they offer our community!
