Recently retired RN and currently the program director for the Feed the Kids summer feeding program at Elks Lodge #2731, past Exalted Ruler and Trustee.

Have volunteered as a delivery driver for EPMOW for 2 years and have worked closely with EPMOW for several years for the Elks Lodge Feed the Kids program. I have a firm belief that no one in this country should ever be hungry which is why I am honored to be on the EPMOW Board of Directors and am totally committed to the mission.
