Q1: Where do you work? I work as an Administrative Specialist for DHHS in District 60.

Q2: How did you become involved in SEANC? I became involved through my sister, Anita King, who asked me to join.

Q3: What offices have you held in SEANC? I was secretary for two terms before becoming the chair of District 60.

Q4: What has been the most rewarding part of being active in SEANC? The community and family feel of SEANC has been the most rewarding thing for me. I really enjoy doing local recruit events and events like Laundry of Love, which provided laundry detergent and support for those in need. I enjoy learning about others and not taking things for granted. I am also impressed with how open people can be when sharing things about themselves.

Q5: What do you wish everyone knew about SEANC? I wish people knew what we do as an organization. I think some people are still confused as to what they have access to as a member. They don’t know about SEANC’s discounts, programs, resources, or purchasing power.

Q8: What is an interesting fact about you that people should know? I have lived in Montana and am retired Navy. I spent about eighteen years outside the US in places such as Japan, Italy, and Spain.
