Control Room Operator- Retired from Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association in January of 2013 prior to assuming office. Worked for 33 years at Craig Station. One of the largest power plants in the United States.
I earned my B.S. in broadcasting from Northern Arizona University in 1976.
During my undergraduate studies, I attended Chapman College’s World Campus Afloat for a semester at sea. While on board, I was able to study cultural anthropology, between port stops in Africa, India and Pacific Rim countries. During that time, I not only marveled at other cultures and traditions, but also grew to deeply appreciate life in the United States. Africa and India were my first encounter with genuine poverty. South Africa was my first exposure to segregation and racism. The county of Angola was in the initial phase of its revolution.
I served as Northern Arizona University’s radio station manager during my last year of undergraduate work.
Quality education is important to me and so I served as a Moffat County School District, Board of Education member.
Top-notch affordable health care is another priority for me. I was honored to serve as a Trustee for the Memorial Hospital at Craig.
While holding down a full-time job, I was able to successfully complete course work on a Master of Business Administration degree from University of Phoenix.
