Marlene grew up in the Texas panhandle before moving to Kansas where she attended high school and college. After college, she taught high school Business in Claflin, KS before moving to Wichita, KS where she began a long career in casualty insurance underwriting. She transferred to the Dallas office of USF&G which brought her back to Texas!
In 1999, she began a new career with American Airlines as a Flight Attendant.
Marlene joined the Dallas Ski Club in 1992 and has been fortunate to go on several ski trips every year . . . plus many international trips with DSC! She has served on the DSC Board several times over the years – Membership, Happy Hour, Activities, President 2 times (2006/07 & 2019-2020) – as well as serving as our Race Director and Club Archivist. She is still enjoying her job with American which affords her lots of free time for DSC activities & trips! She has a grown son, Tommy, and daughter-in-law, Shawna, who live in the area so Marlene gets to spend much time with her new grandson, Landon, who was born in December, 2019 as well as her 10-year-old granddaughter, Addison, who’s become quite the ski bunny!
Marlene encourages everyone to get involved with the Club – volunteer to help at the Check In table at Happy Hours & parties! That’s a great way to get to know other members and she also encourages you to consider serving on the DSC Board in the future!
