Program Administrator

My husband’s employment brought us to Colorado in 1998-2004 and again in 2010.  Good thing, because we missed the 300+ days of sunshine each year!

Working with volunteers has been my privilege for over 20 years.  What a great way to meet amazing new people and share in their aspirations, whatever they may be. Congratulations to our rock star volunteers and staff for making CAPS an internationally award-winning program!

Born and raised in Buffalo, New York, I escaped the world renowned blistering snow storms and headed for the Sunshine State!

Florida was home for nearly 30 years where I worked as a law enforcement officer.  Retirement brought me to the Rocky Mountain State and eventually, a new job as a CAPS Coordinator.

The most enjoyable aspect of my work is conducting interviews because I love listening to you and I’m honored to hear your incredible “life stories.” 

Thank you for making this job so special!

We arrived in Colorado in 2010 (thanks to the U.S. Army) and decided to stay! We love Colorado Springs and find it a great place to raise children.

I have been a volunteer for many years working with several wonderful non-profit agencies and was the founder of a non-profit grassroots charity made up of women and children serving women and children in need. I also have 12 plus years of law enforcement experience.

I am so excited and blessed to be a part of the CAPS team and cannot wait to meet all of you!
