Eleven years ago, I escaped the heat and crowds of Southern California and landed in our lovely community. I enjoy gardening, painting with watercolors and crafting with long pine needles. I also volunteer at Salem’s Center for Spiritual Living and the Silverton Senior Center, covering the reception desk one day a week.
The Senior Center has become part of my extended family and keeps me socially active with all of the volunteer opportunities available. I currently serve as Board Treasurer and chair both the Membership Committee and the Policies and Procedures Committee.
When I worked for a living, I wrote technical documents and trained fellow employees at a defense contractor in Southern California. I chose to be on the Board of Directors to help organize the day-to-day business to run more efficiently.
