I was born in Saint Paul Minnesota. Raised in White Bear Lake, Minnesota leaving there in 1974 for Phoenix. I was in Hotel Sales in Minnesota as well as in the early years of my Phoenix relocation. Then I became a volunteer fundraiser serving on the Heart Ball Committee, Barrow Women’s Neurological Board, St. Lukes Foundation Board, Harrington Arthritis Foundation Board, Trends Charitable Foundation Board (co-chairing the Trends Fashionality Luncheon with Michelle 1996, the Phoenix Symphony Board (co-chairing with Michelle the 50th Anniversary Gala in 1998) and numerous other committees during a span of almost 25 years. Now that I live in Forest Highlands in Flagstaff year round since 2008, I have been on the Forest Highlands Foundation Board for 4 years and continue to help with an annual dinner/auction. Forest Highlands Golf Club is one of the few, if not only, golf clubs that raise money for charities. We are proud to say that we have raised over $3M for Flagstaff charities from the homeless shelters, food banks, Hospice, education, etc.
