As a SCNV member, I bring to the Board strong organizational skills and strategic thinking, garnered from my 30-plus years of professional background as a planner and strategic advisor in the Federal Government and private industry. I joined the SCNV Board in 2011 with a commitment to help revitalize operations and transform the Club into a dynamic organization that better serves our community. To do this, I have played a key role in helping the Club expand its activities to grow membership through outreach and education programs, championing the growth of Theatre on Ice and synchronized skating teams, leading the Cardinal Classic since its inception in 2016, and supporting graduating seniors through the creation of the collegiate scholarship fund. Over the years, I have served on the SCNV Board in a variety of capacities: test chair, fundraising chair, secretary, membership chair and competition chair. I also have an appointment as a U.S. Figure Skating Test Judge, Silver Level.
Board members need to have creative ideas and an energetic approach; I couple these requirements with solid planning skills to implement programs, provide sound fiscal and organizational management, an open feedback process to ensure programs continue to meet the needs of our skating community and a track record of dedication to the sport of figure skating.
