Has lived at 1205 Summers End Dr for 24 years.
EXPERIENCES: I have over 30 years of experience as an IT Systems Engineer and have served the past 2 years as a board member as well as in 2007. I have volunteered throughout the 24 years I’ve lived here to help the HOA with technical and financial related issues and have a great deal of knowledge regarding the subdivision.
DESIRE TO SERVE: I truly care about our subdivision. When I decided to run for the board 2 years ago my goal was to make Summer Chase better. I feel the past 2 years the board has made significant updates and each year our subdivision is better than the year before. It’s important to me that our common ground property is kept up to date but in a way that won’t adversely affect the assessment. I monitor the financial records to make sure updates will fit financially and have set up procedures to help future trustees understand when maintenance items need to be performed.
OTHER INFORMATION: My husband, Vance, and I are empty nesters and have loved living in Summer Chase and raising our family in this community. We have 2 sons. Brad, who graduated from Missouri S&T and is now living on his own and David, a senior at Mizzou.

DESIRE TO SERVE: I would like to continue serving as a trustee to help continue the awesome improvements that the current trustees have implemented in our neighborhood. I have seen tangible improvements that will reflect on every owner's property value. We also have several improvements planned for the pool, including rebidding our pool contract, that I would like to see through.
OTHER INFORMATION: I am married to John and we have 3 children: Jacob, recently married to Jordan, Sarah and Sam . Summerchase is such a unique neighborhood being surrounded by all the schools.

OTHER INFORMATION: I pride myself on how adaptive and tech savvy I am, as well as quick to pick up on new innovations, which I believe is a necessary skill in this technologic boom of an era we are in.
