I've been an amateur radio operator since 1975 and currently hold an Advanced license. I am a life member of QCWA. With my husband Gary, KØBC, and others I helped build the Bolivar, MO repeater and participated in starting the local radio club. Currently I'm President of QCWW Chapter 120 and a past officer of Foothills of the Ozarks Chapter 180. I graduated from college with a BA degree in 1967.
For 10 years, I was President of Polk County Christian Social Ministries, a local charity serving over 1250 people a year and distributing Christmas baskets of food and gifts to 450 families annually. I have served in leadership positions in my Church. I have been a communications volunteer for the local MS 150 Bike Marathon.
I think one of my strong character points is that I can work for the best interests of an organization, laying aside my own personal opinions when necessary. I have enjoyed making acquaintances at several QCWA chapter meetings as well as Conventions and I am looking forward to making more friends in the future.
