I have been a full time resident of Coffman Bend for 15 years, and have never been happier in my life than since I moved here. I am a Polymer Chemist, put myself through 10 years of college, have two master’s degrees and have owned my own Polymer Laboratory for 32 years. I helped the Coffman Bend Fire Association board as a committee member in the past, and have been a Volunteer Fireman here for a few years now. My wife Nieves and I love this community, have great friends here and believe this place is special in God’s heart. It is my honor to be considered for the board.
My husband and I have been in Coffman Bend since 2001, and have participated in the CBFA fund-raising efforts for several years. I frequently attend the board meetings to be able to keep myself updated on the fire department’s needs. I would like to participate even more by becoming a CBFA board member and to help guide the decisions for our volunteer fire department.
I have worked in the Corporate arena for 35+ years, mostly in data centers, with my last position as an IT Project Manager. My husband and I are current business owners in Climax Springs. I would like to utilize my skills and commitment to further support the CBFA.
I have been a homeowner on the Bend since June of 2008. I am passionate about the area and have the desire to help improve the quality and standards for the residents within Coffman Bend. I have participated in fundraising events such as the Bend Clean Up, the Chili Supper and the Shootout. While employed at IBM I submitted and attained two Grants for the Coffman Bend Fire Association. I am currently serving as the Secretary for the Board and would appreciate a vote from you.
