Currently I am serving as the President of Soroptimist of Bend with a great supporting Board and members! Originally from Cleveland, OH (GO BROWNS!), my husband and I relocated to Bend, OR upon retirement in April of 2011. We have two daughters, Christina, who lives with her husband and dog-child, Dozer, in Belmont, CA, and Jessica, who lives with her husband and dog-child, Peppers, in Chicago, IL. We do have a third dog-child, Cassie, who lives with us in Bend! Coming from a long line of quilters, I was fortunate to find a part-time job at BJ's Quilt Basket in Bend where I am meeting a lot of new people while supporting my fabric-buying habit. Soroptimist of Bend has not only welcomed me into a prestigious organization with a 70 year history in Bend, but has also provided me an opportunity to feel at home through building relationships with our members and partner organizations to meet needs in our community.
