Treasurer, Spartan Foundation, Inc.

Tell me a little about you: where are you from?
I am a life-long resident of Richfield with two children who also are graduates of Richfield High School.



Please describe what company you are with, your job title, and what you do for this company.
The Richfield Spartan Foundation, Inc. was founded in 1990 while I was on the Board of Education for the Richfield Public Schools. I have served as the Treasurer of the Foundation since inception.




What inspired you to join the Chamber? How has your experience been with the chamber?
Having served as the President of the Chamber of Commerce for twenty years, I witnessed firsthand the opportunities non-profits were afforded through the chamber to become more involved in the community.  The Spartan Foundation, Inc. has surpassed $300,000 in contributions to support the youth of Richfield primarily through post-secondary scholarships.  This past year we provided scholarships to fifteen deserving Richfield High School graduates.


What do you do when you are not at
Involvement in various volunteer capacities allows me to stay involved in the community.
