Rotarian since 2002
I joined Rotary in 2002. I am a charter member of the Stone Oak Rotary Club and the club's first female president. I've also served at the district level for Rotary International District 5840. I am a Lieutenant Governor currently. I have served in the positions of assistant governor, district treasure, and Rotaract chairperson. It is an honor to serve Rotary!
Speaking at the White House
The White House honored 10 Rotary women, known as Rotary's Women of Action, and I was fortunate enough to be selected as one of them. We each gave a speech at the White House about our humanitarian service through Rotary.
