Tell us a little about yourself and why the NCBC is important to you.
I was born and raised in Las Vegas and have worked for the Nevada Bankruptcy Court for about 30 years and been a member of NCBC during most of that time. I decided that my life is finally at a point where I have time to be able contribute to NCBC. I have observed how NCBC has evolved over the years. NCBC has been influential in staffing for the Clerk's offices through various initiatives and programs. When Ken Hirz retired, the position of Treasurer became available. I am great with accounting and felt this would be a good time to give back to this organization that has made a positive impact on the bankruptcy community.

My dad - we have always been close, even during my teen years. When I was growing up, Dad always had time to talk or work on projects with me, no matter how busy he was.

No matter what we are doing, we have an awesome time.
