IHC Board of Directors

During my working career I have given financial and hands-on support to many charitable organizations, as well as being an American Youth Soccer Organization soccer coach, PTA member, High School Music Boosters President, and project leader for yearly community rebuilding projects through my employer (Boeing).

Since my retirement (3 yrs ago), I have been volunteering for Habitat for Humanity, repairing senior citizens’ homes to address safety issues and donated food, money, and construction time to the Idyllwild Help Center. I have an engineering degree with business management, program management and building construction experience, and have run small businesses. I have always been a strategic thinker looking for practical solutions to create the conditions for successful outcomes.

I have owned a home in Pine Cove since 2007 and, although not a full time resident, I look forward to supporting the Idyllwild community and working with like minded people to make a difference.
