Q: How long have you been a DMCC Board member?
A: Since December 2013 

Q: Why did you decide to become a DMCC Board member?
A:  I have always been very interested in Conservation, and even considered that as a degree when I was younger. Working with our conservation group and seeing their passion and dedication has really re-sparked my interest in what they do and I believe they make a tremendous impact on the community and lives of the people that live in our area. Prior to moving back to this area, I lived inside of a very large State Park for about 7 years. The wildlife and natural surrounding became so much of a part of our life, that it would be very hard to live without it now. So being involved with a group that can bring that appreciation to others is a great fit for me.

Q: What is the biggest challenge for DMCC?
A: Well, like many other groups, I believe that would be finance. Being able to insure the best use of funds as well as finding avenues in which we can obtain more funding would be a large priority. There are many opportunities available, and with the professionalism of the Conservation group, we should be able to promote our area as a great candidate for those opportunities.

Q: How has volunteering for DMCC changed your thinking?
A:  At this time, I don't know that anything has changed my thinking. However, I will say that I have spent a lot of time with the Conservation employees and have been very impressed with the group and how dedicated they are to what they do. You do not find that same level of dedication by everyone involved in most businesses. Being a Human Resource and Safety Professional for (Um, some) years, I really find this group to be a breath of fresh air.

Q: What is your favorite outdoor activity?
A: Just being outside is great for me. I love working in the yard, digging in the dirt and even fishing on our stocked pond. But my true passion would involve my show dogs and being outside working with them. I love taking them for long walks through the woods and can't wait to take them out on the new Flint River Trail.
