My family moved to Homer in 1995 from Anchorage. We loved raising our boys in and around Kachemak Bay. Our sons have chosen to live and work here and are kind members of the Homer community. When they were young, I volunteered in their classrooms, as Cub Scout Leader for several years, and then I participated in Boy Scouts through committee work. I enjoy kayaking and exploring Kachemak Bay and scuba diving in warmer waters.
I learned about the tapestry of Homer service organizations through my work at the Department of Labor. Quality early childhood evaluation and learning is vital to support human development. I joined the Board of Directors in December 2016 to advocate for Sprout Family Services because it is an agency that is an integral part of Homer. A better world involves participating in community and supporting children.
