Why did you join Civil Air Patrol?
I was a cadet a reaaaaallllllllyyyyyyyyy long time ago and rejoined when my son turned 14. He had heard all the stories about CAP and when we found out about the unit in Kona (HI) we were both all in.
What is your Civil Air Patrol unit?
I am currently assigned to the Wing as Vice Commander, but my heart will always be with the Kona Composite Squadron. It's where I cut my Senior Member teeth.
Why did you say YES! to serving as Deputy Chief of Field Fundraising?
I love seeing our members be successful and doing what they enjoy most. When the burden of finances are removed from the equation, we are free to focus on the mission of serving our communities well. Plus, I love the idea/challenge of building a program from the ground up - of being part of the change that will benefit everyone. Crazy, right?!
Anything else we haven’t asked that we should?
My youngest son recently transitioned from Cadet (6 years in the program and earned his Earhart) to Senior Member, prior to deploying with his Army National Guard unit this past August. Oh, and I like coffee and chocolate.
