I worked for 35 years in the areas of finance and marketing in 3 countries. I have provided strategic, management and financial guidance as board member of manufacturing, retail, and nonprofit organizations since 1995. I held numerous executive positions including the leadership of the $15 Billion North American finance company of Caterpillar before retiring to Tucson. Over the years I earned a BS in Biology, an MBA in Finance and a DBA in International Finance.
I have been interested in astronomy for more than 50 years, but living for the last 30 years in urban settings has limited my ability to pursue my love of the science. Soon after coming to Tucson, I joined TAAA and in 2014 I was elected as Treasurer.
