As a Las Sendas Board Director and Communications Committee chairperson, I desire to be continuously open to hearing residents’ viewpoints, concerns, and new ideas. In my observation, our community’s volunteer board and committee members are men and women dedicated to encouraging two-way communication, have a willingness to adapt and change, lead with honesty and fairness, and have the ability to ask for help from those who are more knowledgeable.
My 37-year career as a senior leader in public relations and marketing for health care systems and private universities has prepared me for my service with the Las Sendas Community Association (LSCA). The professional experiences that contribute to my work with the LSCA include brand development and image management; community and government relations; alumni and donor development; student recruitment; patient relations; senior leadership counsel in issues management and media relations; and the strategic integration of the full breadth of communication materials.
Prior community engagement includes chairing and serving on non-profit boards, including three chamber of commerce organizations, philanthropic clubs, a volunteer recruitment and service program hub, a performing arts center, school district, business district property owners’ alliance, senior adults’ program, and more.
We moved to Las Sendas in 2019 from Palos Verdes, California. My husband Tommy and I have two married daughters and two granddaughters. I have a bachelor's degree in journalism and public relations from San Diego State University and a master’s degree in health administration from the University of LaVerne.
As we cross paths, I encourage you to share with me what’s on your mind. I care about your Las Sendas experience and fully believe that together, our thoughts and actions will benefit our beloved Las Sendas community.
