My Rotary Story

I was first introduced to the Catalina Rotary Club as a guest speaker on behalf of Tucson Clean & Beautiful and the Trees for Tucson program, where I worked for nearly 17 years. I had visited the Catalina and various other Rotary clubs multiple times beginning in 2003, including Tucson Sunset, my original home club. On a return visit there as a guest speaker, I was encouraged to apply and eventually became part of the Group Study Exchange team that went to the Cape Town, South Africa area in Rotary District 9350 in April-May 2009.

On the 2010 anniversary of returning from the GSE program, I joined the Tucson Sunset Rotary Club. I eventually served as Tucson Sunset club president in 2014-2015, and the club’s RI Foundation Chair during the following Rotary year.

Pursuing the Eller MBA program also provided a bit of a Rotary membership detour. From 2016 to 2019 I first moved to the Sunrise Rotary Club’s then-satellite Eclub, and eventually was a member of the actual Tucson Sunrise Rotary Club. Due to family and work schedule changes after I joined the staff at Equitable Advisors, I found my Rotary home in the Catalina Club with existing and new friends!

It is my pleasure to once again serve as club president, this time at Catalina Rotary, for 2024-2025! I look forward to guiding our club over the next year and in collaboration with our past and future club and district leaders to make “The Magic of Rotary” happen in our community and far beyond! I see my role as one where I am facilitating bringing out the best of what we each have to offer to the world through the fellowship we share in Rotary. I appreciate fellow Rotarians and friends of the club who are already beyond generous in contributing hands-on time, expertise, and dollars for our club’s high impact projects and partnerships.
