Recreation has a special place in my heart as I reflect on some of the best times of my life as an adolescent participating in parks and rec programs. Those positive experiences, fun, and community were the building blocks for my career. I have a passion for aquatics and love for seniors. Youth sports, well that's just fun! I have served on the District 9 board of directors for the past 4 years as an Aquatics rep, and VP which brings up to President Elect today. I enjoy serving the community while having my own community of professionals to lean on for support and come together for a great time every now and then. Parks really do make life better.
