As a founding member of the Board of Director’s of the Nevada Chapter of the Paralyzed Veterans of America, and a member of the PVA for over 24 years, I have a great interest and concern about the process and administration benefiting our membership having learned many ways over the years to help veterans and non-veterans with disabilities. I would like to continue to help make NVPVA a major contributor in the cause of veterans with disabilities, benefits and quality of life issues.

I was born in 1956 and raised in Pennsylvania. After graduating from high school in 1974, I joined the US Navy. After an accident cut short my Naval career in 1980, I was retired. As a non-commissioned officer, I understand what the job needs and work hard to get it done. As a member of the Board of Directors, I haven’t given up on what needs to be done to benefit membership.

Riches I have found come in many lifelong friendships and in helping others. I feel very fortunate in my working relationships in getting things done to benefit others. I am very active with wheelchair sports in the Las Vegas community, working with the Las Vegas Adaptive Sports Department and Nevada PVA.

Keeping the members informed and contributing to the planning of events and get togethers that bond membership is one of my ongoing goals.
