RBSTC is a beautiful asset to our community! One of my first thoughts after seeing the club was “what a great place to raise a family!” My background includes: teaching 2nd grade; developed an Identity Program for Motorola Dealers Nationwide; Sales and Accounting for family business; Director of Operations for Nationwide Fundraising Company; currently retired and enjoying life!
As a past board member, I was President, Vice President and Secretary. I also served on the many committees including: Tennis/Pickleball, Guest Policy, Hiring Current General Manager and HR.
I recently celebrated my 47th anniversary, have two married daughters and four grandchildren that live in RB. I love spending time with my grandkids on the playground, pool and watching them play tennis. Now, most of my time is spent playing and growing the game of Pickleball in RB.
My focus is to be fiscally responsible and HR compliant, while maintaining a friendly environment for members, guests and staff.
I have been a home owner in the San Diego area since 1981. In 2008, my wife Karon and I purchased a home in Rancho Bernardo and we’ve been members of the RBS&T Club since that time. We hope this will be our “forever home” because we love it!

Rancho Bernardo Swim and Tennis Club has always played a big part in my life. I started going to the Rancho Bernardo Swim and Tennis Club on a regular basis with my family back in 1964. I was only six years old at the time. Over the next 10 years I spent additional time at "The Club" with friends. It has always been a wonderful place for family and friends.

A lovely and well maintained RBSTC is a benefit to everyone in our community. I feel it is important to support this community asset and that is why I am running for this position. My parents were the first to move to this area and enjoy all RBSTC has to offer. While spending time with my parents, I came to love the charming small town feel of Rancho Bernardo and ended up moving here as well.
A little bit about myself, I was born and raised in San Diego. I have been a deputy district attorney for over 25 years and have a great deal of experience collaborating and working with others to find solutions and make our community safer. This includes being a member of the San Diego County Child Abuse Committee, San Diego County Child Fatality Committee and San Diego County Probation Department’s Domestic Violence Committee. For relaxation, I enjoy swimming, hiking, traveling, cooking and chatting with my wonderful neighbors. I recognize it is essential to give back to the community in order to preserve the community you love. It is an honor to serve on the board.
