Foundation Role

I am looking forward to my position as Treasurer of the OC Trail Tales Foundation. My responsibilities will include accounts receivable, accounts payable and all the foundations accounting.

Professional Background

I am currently the office manager of a manufacturer’s rep agency located in Southern California. I am joining the OC Trail Tales Foundation with previous volunteer experience as Treasurer for National Charity League – Saddleback Valley Chapter. In addition to Treasurer, I have also held various volunteer positions within our community.

Hobbies and Interests

I enjoy cycling, running and swimming (yes, in that order). I love training with a team and the support and friendships I have found with the OC Trail Tales team. I am an avid fan of ice hockey and the Anaheim Ducks. If you don’t see me out there training, you can usually find me at a Ducks game.

Where I Grew Up

I was born and raised in Los Angeles. I attended Loyola Marymount University. I moved to Orange County 20 years ago with my husband and two daughters.

How long in OC Trail Tales

Being a late starter to running, I trained on my own for the Rock n Roll Half Marathon-Las Vegas in December 2011. That race sparked my love of running and I continued to train alone and complete Surf City Half Marathon and OC Half Marathon the following year. It wasn’t until August of 2012 that I found OC Trail Tales and my newfound love of running trails. After experiencing the sense of support and team spirit, I realized how much I was missing running on my own. I am excited that we will now be sharing that same sense of commitment, community and camaraderie in the philanthropic arena.
