"Being on the board helps me to feel a closer community connection while doing my part within my means to make a difference. It is important to me to be an upstanding citizen in society and part of that is giving to the community you live in. If I can share my knowledge, experience and compassion for humans, then I feel I am making a difference to build a more sustainable society.
I am most excited for how Gila House is growing to continue to address the needs of Gila County. The expansion of additional homes and additional funding will continue to help families, elderly and disabled with housing concerns within this community.

"I was honored to have been asked to serve on the Gila House, Inc. Board of Directors. As a relatively new resident of Globe (since July 2020), I'm excited to have this opportunity to be involved in helping to provide assistance to residents of our community who are struggling with difficult circumstances. I also see this as an opportunity to become more familiar with our community through the knowledge and experiences of the other Board members who have lived in Globe much longer than I have.
The individuals and families that Gila House, Inc. serves are going through a very difficult and painful time in their lives. I've spent much of my time in ministry dealing with people in similar situations and I'm excited about being able to use my experiences, gifts, and abilities to serve in this new environment.
I believe that my background and experiences in Christian ministry, Native American ministry, architecture, and the business world will enable me to connect with, and assist with, the various services that Gila House, Inc. provides and offer some additional perspectives that may be helpful."
" Being on the board of the Gila House gives me a better insight on community needs versus that only of a Law Enforcement perspective. This is an opportunity to collaborate with others to provide essential needs in the community for those who have suffered catastrophic loss and are in need of housing.
As a new member of the board I first want to learn what the board has done, both positive an negative in the past. Learn and contribute moving forward in a positive way.
My participation will allow for more outreach in the community to let them know what Gila House is all about. Work with local groups, government to spread the word and share some of the outcomes that Gila House as been instrumental in assisting local families. Reach out to other groups, Law Enforcement, Government to share information on their social media platforms on what the Gila House is and is doing for the community."
"Being on the Gila House board of directors allows me to be part of an organization that assists members of our community. This organization is designed to help people get back on their feet and rebuild their lives when a crisis emerges in life. Being able to serve on this board resonates strongly with me as someone who has experienced domestic violence and can relate to the struggles involved in getting back on your feet.
It is important for anyone experiencing domestic violence to know they are not alone. There is a safe place to turn to without judgment. A safe place that will help to give a hand up and help you to find your inner strength. Together we can help strengthen our community. I feel that if we can provide a safe home for families to turn to in their time of need, it eliminates one obstacle, to allow them to focus on rebuilding. I feel that we can assist with giving people a solid foundation to begin again. I look forward to seeing the growth of this organization and I'm proud to be a part of it."
I am excited to be a part of the Gila House and believe in their mission to help the community. Being a part of a team that helps support people during rough patches in their life’s journey has always been a passion of mine and I’m looking forward to serving Globe and the surrounding areas.
