I am a political activist who until January of 2004, was never
politically active in my life. I read John Kerry’s book “A Call to
Service” and that changed. I looked at this country and where it was
headed, and I knew that I never wanted my son to read about this time in
history and ask me “Why didn’t you do something?” As a Navy Veteran of 9
years of active duty and reserve time, I once raised my hand for my
country today it is in need.

I became the Wisconsin State Coordinator for Veterans for Kerry,
building the organization to over 2000 members statewide. I did
everything from phone calls, walking in parades, to planning events, and
always with the help of my fellow veterans and many hardworking
volunteers. In November, veterans from across the state met and formed
Wisconsin Veterans for Progress to continue to fight on for veteran and
military issues and support politicians who support our issues. The
veterans of this state voted to keep me as the state coordinator.
Wisconsin has been a leader to organize the national organization that
was Veterans for Kerry into Veterans for Progress. Currently I am
Co-Chair for the national conference that is being held in Milwaukee,
February 25–27, 2005. Over 30 states and veteran organizations are
attending to see where we veterans go from here.

I am running for Vice Chair of the 5th District Democratic Committee
this year. I am excited by the energy and ideas from the people of this
area to continue to fight for what is right for all people of this
country, not just the privileged few. Our goal as a committee is to
assist Democrats/Progressives who wish to run for office and win in
places where before this last election, no one would have even
considered running. We need to use our voices and strength from what is
right to change the future for the better.

I am originally from Appleton, WI, though I lived away form Wisconsin
for many years. My husband, son and I live in Wauwatosa, which I have
called home for eight years now. I am attending the University of
Wisconsin- Milwaukee as a pre-nursing student. My first degree is from
University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, Bachelor of Science in Business
Administration. After leaving the Navy, I worked in Human Resource
positions in business until my son was borne. In addition to the above
veteran’s organizations, I am also a member of the American Legion Post
18, Veterans for Peace, Tosans for Change, and the Woman Leadership
Network of Wisconsin. I was the Wisconsin State Coordinator for Turn
Your Back on Bush protest, January 20, 2005 in Washington D.C.

You have done good work for the good cause and there are people from all over who will enjoy hearing your story and that of your allies.

A page will appear for you to cut and paste or compose on right there.

When you have finished, being sure to never indent, use “*” for bullet points and “#” for numbers, go to the bottom of the page and click “submit.”

Look at the finished product. If you wish to make further changes, to to the top of the page again to “edit,” and follow the same process.

Feel free to call me at 232 1336 if you have questions. I am working to create a situation where self managed web pages are as much a birthright as literacy.

Clear sailing,
