Here is a little about me. I started working for the YMCA 26 years ago in a small town in Iowa. After several years of running Youth Sports, Adult Sports and Summer Day Camp, I moved to Dallas and worked as a Program Director at the Irving YMCA. I then accepted the Executive Director position in Abilene, where I worked for four years. After that I took a VP position in Arlington where I was fortunate enough to open a new building and renovate two others. I then moved to Houston for six years before returning back to the Dallas YMCA!
