    Athlete Bio

    Location:  Dubuque Iowa

    Position on Board: Interim Chair-at-large position (Independent)

    Current job: Executive Director – Dubuque Mercy Health Foundation

    Connection to bobsled and skeleton:  Grew up in Westport NY which is in shadow of the Mt. Van Hovenberg Olympic bobsled track and, at an early age, fell in love with sledding.  Didn’t try Skeleton until 2005 and got hooked.  Have been interested and as involved as possible ever since. First selected to board in 2007.

    Motivation for involvement on Board:   My goals are two-fold; 1) to bring to the table people who, through donations and sponsorships, can open as many doors as possible for athletes to accomplish their Olympic dreams. 2) create the USBSF to be a model NGB within the USOC movement.

    What you hope to contribute: Passion for the sports and administrative skills to bring the USBSF to a new level of excellence.
