I believe I am offering new creativity and a more meaningful dialog to move DVRC forward. I believe I've shown my ability to think for myself and present to others. I believe it's past time that the Board should motivate and bring excitement to DVRC residents.
Challenges still remain, getting more residents involved to financially support our 55+ age restricted community. I strongly believe the first step is to do away with the divide and make All Residents welcome to Study Sessions and Board Meetings. I personally believe there are many out there who have some wonderful ideas and skills to be shared with DVRC. I need the younger generation to join me in these endeavors. Sadly we are losing the generations before us and its imperative that our younger generation starts stepping up. Or we will lose a treasured DVRC. Our older generations have cared and supported our beloved Dreamland for years and it's our turn to care for Dreamland.
I want to thank my friends and mentors who are pulling me out of the background into the forefront. I'm looking forward to this educational journey of service. I may be the youngest sitting on the Board of Directors but I'm here for all. I believe I have brought many new ideas to the Board and I strongly want to encourage others to do the same. We are all needed in our community.
This is my 3rd time living in Dreamland. After my first month I was in love with the community. The quiet, peaceful atmosphere, clean tidy neighborhood, no parked cars on the street, no kids was all so refreshing. I felt safe and I was home. I unfortunately was a renter on two occasions and was asked to move due to the selling of the rental property. That was the last straw... I am purchasing house number three. I have been in Dreamland for nine years.
I was born and raised in Austin, Texas and started my work career at an early age. I worked for some years for a US Senator. I then worked for a couple of attorneys getting their account payables in order. I married, relocated to California and landed in Santa Rosa where we started a successful business. My duties were accounting and payroll. I relocated to Arizona a few decades ago and started another successful business. My duties remained the same.
I have been divorced over a decade. Dreamland was too quiet for him. Ha-ha
Thank you for the encouragement and support I have received from one and all. I can't think of a better time for me to run for the Board of Directors while I still have mentors and teachers to lead me down the path.
