Place 1 / Mayor Pro Tem
I was raised in Long Island, NY and graduated from Adelphi University with a Bachelor of Arts degree (Psychology, 1978). In 1979, I moved to Houston and began my career with the Campbell Soup Company (6 yrs); then James River Corporation (11 yrs); and finally, Coca-Cola North America (18 yrs). I have been married for 27 years, have owned our home in Lago Vista since 1991, and moved to Lago Vista full time in 2013.
In 2011, I retired from Coca-Cola North America, as a Senior Sales Executive with expertise in consumer goods and services, negotiating contracts, program development and implementation, and employee development training. I worked with cities using bonds and grants to meet the developmental needs of their community. I developed an NCAA/Coca-Cola Foodservice program that was accepted nationally and is used in various championship venues. I have a proven track record of solving challenging problems and producing results. I am self-motivated and an innovative thinker. I have developed an ability to handle complex projects and function well as both a team player and as a leader.

My overall objective is to work with the Citizens, City Staff, City Council, Chamber of Commerce, and the POA towards a more organized, efficient, and inclusive City government. My approach to growth and development of Lago Vista is from a strategic approach by having a plan, establishing goals that are realistic, specific, measurable, attainable, and time-bound. As a member of City Council, the Council must take ownership of our existing assets and address current financial and infra-structure needs and concerns so that we as a City are in a position of strength and stability as we continue to grow and develop.
