Director at Large
I have been on the Calaveras Chamber of Commerce board since 2014. I have worked with 5 different Chamber CEOs. My desire to be on the Chamber board came from the encouragement given to me from GABA. I wanted to give back to my Calaveras community by being involved in county activities. I moved to Calaveras county full-time in 2005, after owning a cabin several years in Arnold. I became a business owner of Above & Beyond Travel in 2006. I have been recognized as one of the top 100 Elite Travel Professionals in the US on three occasions in my 15 years of business. Above & Beyond Travel has Independent Contractors working from their homes in Hawaii, SF Bay Area, Sacramento area, Central Valley & Calaveras county. I have traveled the world, visiting 6 of the 7 continents. Travel is in my blood, thanks to my Dad. It was my Dad's plan to travel when he retired. Unfortunately, that dream of travel was taken from him when he became paralyzed at the age of 59. I had the pleasure to care for my Dad when my Mom needed relief. In my Dad's wisdom he told me to retire young(which I did from my government job) & to Travel for Him. On a more personal side, I have been married to Joe for 29 years. We are a blended family with 5 adult children & a dozen grandkids ranging in age from 7-29 years old.
