Meet the Team
The Faces of Our Organization
My husband and I moved here from So. Cal 22 years ago and never looked back! I love this community we live in and being a volunteer has its rewards! I joined CVCYC board for the first time in 2004 when my older 2 kids were on the swim team. I wore many hats throughout that time, and I think my biggest accomplishments were helping to raise money to pay off a large debt from remodeling, helping to create the Friday Night Dinners, and I think most of all to gather a large group of locals to tear out the old and put in a new patio outside the hall. I took a break after many years, but I am back on the board ready to make FND's more popular and successful, help improve/update the hall itself, support wonderful swim programs, and be a part of a new playground! Most importantly to make this place great for the community!
