After being through the SFP program and volunteering with them, it was a dream come true to make it on the Board. I am a mother to two wonderful kids Chuk and Nikki, and a grandmother to Amelia. After leaving SFP, I went on to get my Associates degree in Accounting. I have over 25 years of office experience and have been an Accounts Payable Coordinator with Campers Inn RV going on 7 years now. I live with my daughter and cat in Exeter and look forward to bringing a fresh and knowledgeable view to this fabulous organization.
