I grew up in Akron, OH and at the age of 22 years old moved to Atlanta, GA. During the next years, I moved to Los Angeles, CA and worked for Continental Air Lines. Then moved To Denver, CO and worked for Frontier Air Lines for 4+ years and was able to ski more on my days off. From there I moved to Kansas City, MO, where I had 2 children. We lived there for 7 years and I worked as a mother and housewife. Then we moved to Bedford, TX in 1979 and I worked for Amfac Hotel, which is now a Hyatt, for 9 years as a Banquet Captain. From there, I worked for Marriott as Conference Planning Manager. In 1989, I landed a job with GTE , which became Verizon. I worked for them in Las Colinas for 18 years. After my husband passed away in 1999, a member and friend that I worked with encouraged me to join the Dallas Ski Club, which I did in 2000. I went on my first ski trip with the club that year and was hooked ever since. I have led 12 trips for the club (both ski and international). I served as a VP-Winter Expedition for the Texas Ski Council for 1 year. Since then I have been Membership VP twice, Activities VP and President Elect, President and Past President and next term I'll be Membership VP again. I met Pat, the love of my life at a DSC happy hour in August 2005 and we married in October 2007. We are both retired and moved to our current home in Fairview, TX (between Allen and McKinney). We have a wonderful blended family with 6 children between us, 16 grandchildren and 1 new great grandchild.
