I am a 2nd generation SCCA member. My parents started racing in the 70’s and I grew up at the track. Eventually, I brought his wife into the fold, and my children are now the 3rd generation to continue as part of the SCCA family, teenagers that are already working events.
As a teenager myself, I worked T&S and F&C at club races around the country. I’m proud to have attended more than 30 SCCA Runoffs as a volunteer worker. In my 20’s, I started competing in Autocross, attending the Solo Nationals three different times. In 1999, I bought my first road racing car, an SRF, and have competed with that for the last two decades, attending the Runoffs as a competitor three times there as well. I am now working on building a B-Spec Mini Cooper for the coming 2021 season.
With almost 40-years of experience as a volunteer worker, as well as a Solo and Club Racing competitor, I am ready to bring that knowledge to the NER Board of Directors. I have seen what has worked, and what has not, as a member of different regions throughout the country, from the perspective of both a driver and as a volunteer. In my professional career, I am tasked with senior leadership roles that require coordinating teams and both short- and long-term project management, skill that directly correlate to being a director with the club.
I ask for your vote to let me bring my passion for racing, my love of this club, and my leadership experience to help drive NER in the coming years. My goals as a director will include listening to the membership in order to find ways to improve events, as well as increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of club operations, so that NER can provide the best experiences possible.
