Community Volunteer

After leaving the traditional workforce, the focus of my life shifted to raising my family.  The focus of my talents shifted as well and I took on leadership roles in various community and family oriented organizations.  

  • Division Director for AYSO.  Organized 18 teams and coaches for the Fall 2007 season.  Tasks included developing schedules, information distribution and crisis management.
  • Mound Elemtary School PTO Membership Chair.  Promoted support for school PTO and organized membership drive.  Established membership database for use by board members.
  • International MOMS Club.  I currently hold the position of Assistant Regional Coordinator for MOMS Club. I oversee 70+ chapters of this support organization for stay-at-home mothers that is run entirely by voluneers.  I have 17 coordinators that report to me regarding status of chapters.  Issues range from policy infractions to management advice.  In addition, I recruit new volunteers for the organization and help promote the organization in local publications.
