I am interested in being part of the very important board of the BFA.  I have been a member of many boards as well as a co chairman of the Summer Heat Balloon Race in Muncie, Indiana. Being an observer for several years taught me a great deal about safety and procedures of ballooning. I served also as a debriefer for the Nationals under Bill Murtoff. I was an official for World Balloon competitions as well as National and local competitions.  I have crewed, flown, observed, debriefed, competed, trained pilots, planned events and loved the ballooning community!

I was a pilot for 35 years and avoided a major accident during that time. I truly enjoyed competing alongside the top pilots as well as flying passengers for fun.  Training new pilots was also a joy. Each flight was unique. Flying involves constant training and an excellent knowledge of rules. Attending safety seminars was important for me.
When I serve on a board, I know it requires work and attendance. I would do my best to be an active member of the BFA board. I have held various offices on boards including the National President of Hospital Hospitality Houses (such as Ronald McDonald Houses). I also have been a City Councilwoman.  My experiences would benefit the BFA BOARD. I have not owned a balloon since 2014 but I stay in contact with Craig Campbell who bought my balloon. I also check Facebook for ballooning happenings as well as my email. I hope you will consider me for the position of at-large member. Thank you.
