Chair

Reason for Volunteering with the GDCF: Golden is my home and has been for more than 25 years. My children were raised in the community and as a family, we were fortunate to have taken part in the many clubs and resources that the community has to offer. The Community Foundation makes the community a better place by supporting the clubs and resources in their development to grow and stay strong. Investing my time helps me to contribute to the success of the foundation and give back for the many services my family has utilized. This opportunity also helps me to grow my leadership skills and be part of a dynamic team destined to make the community the best it can be!
