I have been on the board of First class Vending for 28 years. I became President of our Nevada branch 4 years ago. Prior to taking on the role of the President I worked in the business from the backend while having a career in Social Services working with special needs children and as a Domestic Violence victim advocate. I have 2 adult children. I have been married for 27 years. I enjoy reading, walking, yoga, swimming and doing crossword puzzles. I am fascinating by human behavior and learning about people's life journeys.
