I am new to Fort Collins, but I am not new to Rotary. I was a Rotarian for a brief period in about 2013, but demands of my career made it difficult to be a contributing member. My grandfather and my wife were Rotarians for over twenty years and my mother has been a Rotarian for almost thirty years. I believe in what Rotary stands for and it is a great way to serve the community, while making friendships that can last a lifetime. 
I moved to Fort Collins in May of 2021 after serving the community of Las Vegas, New Mexico over thirty-three years in various capacities. As a young parent and professional in a small¬∑community, volunteering and serving came naturally to me and my family. I was president of the youth soccer league at 24 years, was president of the local board of Realtors at 29 years and participated in countless community events. I have attended many Rotary meetings and events over the years with my family member Rotarians, and I am ready to become an active member of the Fort Collins Rotary Club. 
I appreciate the opportunity to apply for membership into the Rotary Club of Fort Collins, and I look forward to getting to know all of you.
