I am a good listener who is willing to share ideas openly and compromise if necessary. Outside of my work career I was a member of the Jr. Chamber of Commerce, PTA President and publicly elected to serve as a Local School Committee member and I was President of our HOA. I am currently serving on the ORPS Board of Directors, and I was recently appointed Chair of the A&A Committee. My experience on a personal and professional level has equipped me to be a valued member of the Board. I was humbled and honored to be appointed for a one - year term and I have put my heart and soul into the job since day one. And my tenure on the Board has prepared me to continue to serve the community and help move the Resort forward in a positive direction while keeping an eye on the financial health of the Resort and striving to keep HOA increases to a minimum. I will also be pushing for more open and transparent communications between the Board, Management and the Owners. We have a beautiful Resort and I look forward to working with you, the Board, committees, clubs and management to make ORPS the best it can be!
