I am a founding
member of Audubon Miami Valley and a chapter leader
since 1974. I was my chapter's representative to the
Ohio Audubon Council (OAC) serving as Secretary, Vice-president,
President, and as a member of the Executive Committee.
Later on I helped organize the Council of Audubon Chapters.
In 1995, I received the NAS William Dutcher Award for
Service to the Audubon Cause on a Regional Level. I
was a member of the Strategic Planning committee that
organized the Audubon Ohio. From 1999 to 2005, I served
on the Board of the NAS. Since 1986, I have been office
manager and art teacher at the McGuffey Foundation School,
