I Love Chesterfield. I am honored to be your Councilwoman and I have worked to ensure that your trust in me has been well founded. I listen to the voters, attend meetings, communicate with residents, and seek out answers and solutions to residents' concerns.
I was born and raised in St. Louis, attended public schools, and earned a BA from Washington University. My husband Homer and I moved to Chesterfield over 50 years ago. We raised four children who attended Parkway schools, and have eight grandchildren.
Prior to my Council position, I worked for the wellbeing of children in our area and the St. Louis community at large. I was a Girl Scout leader for many years and was elected to serve on the Board of Directors for the Girl Scout Council of Eastern Missouri. In addition, I have served on the Board of Directors for the Scholarship Foundation of St. Louis, which provides interest free loans to college bound in need students. I was elected President of the Board of Directors for the Delta Gamma Center for Children with Visual Impairments, which provides free services to legally blind children. I also served six years on the Parish Council of my church. These positions have provided me with a wealth of knowledge and insight into governing, organization, problem solving, and most important, finances.
