Born in Covington, Kentucky; we did a lot of moving when I was a child. Moving from Kentucky to Florida and then west across the United States to stay in Klamath Falls, Oregon where I graduated from high school. Moved to Manhattan, Kansas for a couple of years and then back to Klamath Falls. Moved to Carlsbad, California in December 1981 where I started working in the construction field as a paperhanger and painter.
It was while I lived in Carlsbad I was able to attend Mira Costa College. We then moved back up to Siskiyou County in November of 1995 and I moved into Yreka on December 2005. It was a pleasure owning Yreka Paint and Decorating Center for 13.5 years which is when I started getting involved with community service through Yreka Chamber of Commerce, Rotary, and Yreka Planning Commission.
Family & Community
I have two wonderful sons, one here and one in Austin, TX. And blessed with 3 beautiful grandchildren. And I consider myself fortunate to have an extended family of 3 step-daughters with their families. Currently, I own Deb's Window Coverings and More which continues to keep me involved in the business community. I feel so blessed and honored to know and be supported by so many hardworking honest people, as we have in our community. I look forward to serving as your council member.
