The most recent chapter of my career was in corporate sustainability—advocating for investments, policies, and innovations that reduce our collective impact on the Earth’s ecosystems. I was fortunate to do this meaningful work for Kohler Co. for nearly 15 years before deciding to retire in late 2019. After two years of retirement, I felt there was still more I could contribute, so I decided to return to work in May as the director of sustainability for Reyes Coca-Cola Bottling. This puts me in the middle of issues such as plastics recycling, sustainable use of water resources, renewable energy, electric vehicles, and more. I’m also the chair of the Wauwatosa Sustainability Committee, a volunteer advisory committee to city government. Recently, I’ve been struck by similarities between environmental sustainability and anti-racism/anti-oppression work. Both involve changing systems/organizations where decisions are made in ways that harm or disenfranchise others, whether they be those with marginalized identities or future generations. Much needs to be done to bring about a sustainable and equitable society. I believe Unitarian Universalism provides a strong grounding for this work.

After college, I worked as a model and commercial actress in Milwaukee and Chicago. I taught personal and professional development to area youth, before becoming the director of John Casablancas. I retired four years ago. Rick and I have been married 46 years. Our greatest joy is visiting our family who all live across the country. Seventeen years ago we joined UUCW. This past year, I managed the annual Trustee Awards and worked with the Ministerial Transitions. I am honored to be serving my fourth year on the Board.
