In which ways do you help CWSFA advance its mission?

I attend as many monthly meetings as possible to keep up with our current activities and provide input and assistance on various events and projects. As the liaison with Kohl's Associates in Action program, I recruit volunteers and donations in support of our events.

What has been the most rewarding part of your involvement with CWSFA?


The most rewarding aspect of my involvement is to see how our organization has grown over the years.  I've also enjoyed seeing how many organizations and individuals we are able to touch through our work; how we've helped athletes to participate and improve their abilities in their chosen sport.


When you’re not busy with CWSFA business, what sports are you playing or supporting? What else are you passionate about? 


My other activities include working various events for Triple Crown Sports, including fastpitch softball, baseball, basketball and drift car racing.  I also work at the Budweiser Events Center, score scholastic aptitude tests and might be seen in costume as a marketer for Liberty Tax! 


I played softball for Texas A&M and briefly for a Semi-pro team. Two friends and I started the Texas A&M Women's Soccer team and then I found rugby, my true passion.  I played from 1975- 2003, including several international tours.  After retirement I managed the Women's West All Star Select Side (one of 7 in the US) from 2004-2008 when USA Rugby changed their National Team selection process and ended the All Star program.


I still support rugby on many levels, and wish the Women's National Team good luck in the World Cup in France this August! I play goalie for various soccer teams, both indoor and outdoor, women's and coed.

Getting Involved

Volunteer Spotlights

What background or experience do you have that has proven most valuable in your current role with CWSFA?

I have a master’s degree in athletic administration from the University of Nebraska.  I’ve worked in sports management in the golf industry as a college coach, national tournament director, rules official, regional development director, executive director and volunteer.  These experiences have given me the opportunity to support, promote and mentor women and girls’ in sports of all ages and all abilities.

What has been the most rewarding part of your involvement with CWSFA?

I’ve enjoyed meeting leaders of the CWSFA and learning about the organizations background and history.  I look forward to helping make an impact where I can.

What have been your biggest accomplishments with CWSFA/what are you most proud of?

In the short time, I’ve been involved I’ve enjoyed creating awareness of CWSFA.  For example, I recently visited a local grassroots girls’ sports program to bring awareness of CWSFA.  This group was most appreciative of the personal outreach and the information and is excited to establish a relationship with CWSFA.  Going forward, I would like to contribute to ideas and activities for fundraising and sponsorship.

When you’re not busy with CWSFA business, what sports are you playing or supporting? What else are you passionate about? 

I enjoyed a comeback to playing competitive tournament golf over the summer after 12-years away from competition.  It was great to be back in the game as a player.  I plan to continue my playing career in 2017. 

When I was in college I did an internship for USA Volleyball in Colorado Springs, CO.  This peaked my interest in the sport.  I’ve supported and followed volleyball ever since.  The growth for women and girls’ in volleyball has been phenomenal.

I grew up with four brothers.  During the summer, we played backyard soccer and backyard baseball tournaments all day long every day.  I also played organized club soccer on the same teams as my brothers.  There weren’t always teams for girls’.  These are great memories.  I love to see girls’ get involved in youth sports.  I welcome the opportunity to promote and facilitate sport opportunities for girls’.


In which ways do you help CWSFA advance its mission?

I participate in most CWSFA fund raising activities such as the TSC/CWSFA Basketball and TSC Sparkler Softball Tournaments and New West Fest. In addition, I help with the Sports Fairs and the Awards Banquet. 

What has been the most rewarding part of your involvement with CWSFA?


It is so gratifying to be part of an organization that supports girls and women in their pursuit of their chosen sport, in particular by awarding the $500 scholarships each year to the chosen athletes.


When you’re not busy with CWSFA business, what sports are you playing or supporting? What else are you passionate about? 


We have had season tickets to CSU Women’s Basketball for 16 years, and I throughly enjoy watching them play, learning even more about the sport, and seeing the players develop over the time they play for CSU.  We also have season tickets for CSU football, have had for about 17 years, and enjoy that experience also.   


I am very passionate about our family – our daughters and their families and spending time with them whenever possible.  Locally, I support the Ensight Skills Center for visual rehabilitation. I also am very much into environmental issues and I recycle almost everything.

I got involved with the CWSFA in the summer of 2016 after meeting Patty Harsch and becoming more aware of the organization.  I also knew Marsha Smeltzer and of her experience and expertise in athletic administration.  I decided CWSFA would be great organization for me to give back to sports and assist others.

I have been part of CWSFA since its inception in 2008.                                                                                                               My husband & I supported our youngest daughter in playing for Poudre High School volleyball (Also NORCO Club Volleyball) & basketball and then were very active in the CSU Women’s Basketball Booster Club until it was disbanded. With the creation of the CWSFA, I could continue my support of girls & women participation in sports.


I became involved with CWSFA soon after its inception in 2008. I chose to become involved because I enjoyed the other members and wanted to help further our club mission of promoting female involvement in sports.

What has been the most rewarding part of your involvement with CWSFA?


It is extremely rewarding to be associated with an organization who cares about the development of our youth and specifically in this case providing opportunities through sport

for women and girls.  The people are outstanding and are truly involved to support our communities.


When you’re not busy with CWSFA business, what sports are you playing or supporting? What else are you passionate about? 


I recently ‘retired’ from collegiate athletics to spend more time with my family.  It has been great to watch my kids participate in sports and see the joy they have in participation and the life skills they have developed.  I enjoy coaching and have just become the Northridge High School Head Girls Basketball Coach, after assisting for the last two years.  


Sport has provided me with wonderfully amazing opportunities and my passion is to give back and help others.
