Brought to Tucson by way of the US Air Force, I earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Arizona, which enabled a 33-year career at Raytheon. I became owner-operator at two successful restaurants in Catalina, AZ, where we held various fundraisers for people in need. I also spent 18 years on the board of directors at my synagogue, 6 years as president. The diversity of my career and pursuit of a management position in a non-profit organization, brought me to ReSources. I am honored to hold this important position at ReSources, and fortunate to have such a great opportunity to serve the members of our community.
Food Bank Manager
Originally from Jersey City, NJ. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Accounting. I worked in business administration for over 25 years. I then found a love for food and earned an Associate’s Degree in Culinary Arts. Now food is my second passion after my family. After various volunteering activities, I found out about the manager opportunity at ReSources Vail Food Bank. Since food is one of my passions, the opportunity to put my passion and community together is something I could not refuse.
Thrift Store Manager
ReSources Vail Food Bank – Assistant Manager
I am a mom, a registered nurse, an Army Nurse Corp Veteran and an Army spouse. My family and I moved to Vail in 2011 after 7 years in Europe. Vail quickly became home to us as my husband retired and my 3 children attended the Vail School District. I began my Food Bank journey as a volunteer, helping to coordinate the Weekend Backpack Program and assist with other food bank activities. In 2022, I took on the role of Assistant Food Bank Manager. I am fulfilled by spending my day working with amazing volunteers as well as interact with our community through food distribution and the many community members who donate food and other resources to the Vail Food Bank.
Vail Depot Thrift Store – Assistant Manager
I grew up in Tucson and moved to Vail in 2016 with my husband and 4 children in search of a community. I received my Associate’s Degree in Retail & Merchandising, but instead of putting my newfound knowledge to work I spent more than 15 years volunteering for different organizations that were close to my heart. Fast-forward to the present and now I get to use the skills from my degree and volunteering experiences combined to help the Greater Vail Community.
