I was elected POA Board Director in May 2017 and have been a full-time Canyon Lake resident since 2001. During my 18 years in Canyon Lake, I’ve been involved with the Men’s Golf Club, Little League, Co-Ed Softball Club, Men’s Softball Club, Ski Club, and Tennis Club. I also previously served as a member of the Finance, Recreation, and Rules and Regulations committees.
As Director, I’ve gained a much greater understanding of our POA organization and the complexities and challenges of operating our homeowner’s association with an overall annual budget approaching $22 million.
My educational background is in Business Administration. I have a Bachelor’s degree in accounting and a Master’s Degree in Financial Management. My professional experience over 30 years includes the healthcare, restaurant and marine industries, and most recently as International Controller for a $1.5 billion global leader in direct marketing.
- As your Director, my goal is to continue protecting and preserving the exclusive use private community that Canyon Lake already is while helping to plan for an even better community in the years ahead. My financial background provides the expertise needed to properly review current Association expenditures as well as analyze those proposed for the future.
- Since becoming POA Treasurer in 2017, subsidies for the Lighthouse and Country Club restaurants were reduced $170K or 20% during my first year as Director and are on track to reduce another $100K or 15% this year (achieving one of my stated goals in 2017.) While this is great to see, I believe even more subsidy reductions are achievable from increased efficiencies resulting from higher member utilization.
- As a gated community, security will always be a high priority for me. Although we have a new security contract provider, there are current issues that need improvement. Our members should feel that the security contractor is meeting or exceeding their expectations.
