I joined Hollister Rotary in April of 2017 and been a member for 3yrs 4 mos. I served as Vice President-Elect and Rotary Foundation Chair in 2018,  Served as Vice President  in 2019 and now in 2020 serve as President of the Hollister Rotary club.

Since joining Rotary, I have served every year on the committees in planning and working the Mission 10 Race, our club’s biggest fundraiser for student scholarships. I also volunteered working at the San Benito Rodeo concession stand events, helped out at the 2019 United Way ‘Stuff the Bus’ with student backpacks event and joined the Area 6 clubs’ beautification day planting flower pots at the San Benito Historical Park for the park.
I retired from IBM after 33 years as a Senior Software Engineer and moved to Hollister where I worked as Sr. Software Controls Engineer for two local companies then as Sr. Manufacturing Test Engineer in San Jose. In 2017, I finally retired from the long hard commute and took up volunteer work here in Hollister where I was ‘discovered’ for Rotary membership.

Currently, I serve on the Board of Directors for SBC CASA and am a member of the Hollister Elks Club. I was a member and President of SBC SIR Organization for four years and edited the club’s monthly news letter. I have been married to a wonderful lady for 56 years this December.
My main goal as Rotary President is to grow the membership of this club, hoping to gain more women members and new professionals from all those new houses being built in this county.
