What do you hope to bring to the table or describe great things you are doing:

  • I am a creative, outside-the-box thinker and a proponent for change, truly enjoying brainstorming and evaluating systems and methodologies.
  • An insatiable learner, I occasionally get sucked down into the knowledge/research quagmire.   I am slowly learning how to harness my non-neurotypical brain so I am less likely to overwhelm myself and others.  Current topics I am researching include: adults with ADHD, non-profit governance, communication skills, making synthetic chemical-free cleaning agents and Alzheimer’s dz.
  • In addition to my BOD position, I chair the SAVT Bylaw and Policy Committee and am a mbr of the Recertification Committee.

Personal life including pets and hobbies:

  • I enjoy reading, puzzles, old movies, learning about almost anything, and most new experiences.
  • For the first time in 25 years, I am not owned by a cat.
  • I love to swim, the sound of a basketball and sneakers squeaking on a gym floor, eating home-made hamburgers at a minor league softball game

Interesting Fact About You:

  • While I am very sociable, I don’t like crowds and hate to sit with my back to a door or a full room.  Don’t. Make. Me. Do. It.
