I have been a Rotarian since April 25, 2012.

My sponsor was Sandy Kaul.

At that point in my life my job had become less demanding, my children were out of college and gone so I was ready for something new. When Sandy invited me to join the Prior Lake Rotary Club, without much hesitation, I accepted. I was already very familiar with Rotary because of Guy’s many years in the club and I volunteered at the Music Fest every year. Besides the rewards of doing good in the world, I have formed some great friendships in this club. I am thankful that Sandy invited me to join Prior Lake Rotary.

I work at American Glass and Mirror, Inc. a full service glass company that Guy and I started in 1984.

My hobbies are cooking, baking, reading, enjoying nature walks especially looking for animals and birds. I also enjoy going to movies, plays and the opera. Of course my favorite thing to do is world travel, especially to Africa. Something about that continent keeps pulling me back. I am also a board member and treasurer for the non-profit WAVE which does projects in West Africa.
