I have been a Board member since Sept of 2020. I have been involved in helping people with Special Needs for many years in a variety of ways, such as Special Olympics, running Community Education classes and volunteering at Miracle League. I am also a member and current President of Civitan which is a Service Club that raises money and does community service projects to enhance the lives of people with disabilities. In the past I worked for Cardinal of Minnesota for 25 years. I retired in May 2020. I am currently working part time for Elder Network. I feel that all of the above experiences listed helped me to be a strong advocate for the needs and rights of people who are in need of the types of services that EA provides. I have one daughter and three grandchildren.
