2020-2021 Board Members
I have been a military wife for 15 years. I have three amazing kids. I’m a no-nonsense, straight forward east coast girl who loves to have fun and help others. I’m still fairly new to the island so I’m spending most of my days exploring and getting to see all that the island has to offer. I’m very family-oriented. Our weekends and weekday evenings are doing things with the kids and our dogs.
My husband and I have been married for 10 years and have two beautiful children, and a four-legged child, Lady Elaine the dog. My family moved to Hawaii almost 2 years ago. Shortly after we arrived, the Secretary position opened on the PHSOSA board and I immediately threw my name in the ring. I knew I needed a strong support network to make it through my first deployment. Being involved with PHSOSA has allowed me to experience fun things around the island that our activities chair has set up. I have met so many amazing spouses who offer advice or give you the “I know, I’ve been there” reassurance. I am looking forward to another great SOSA year.

We first moved to Hawaii in 2011 for my husband's sea tour, and I was encouraged to join PHSOSA. I learned so much as a new navy spouse from friends I made through PHSOSA and loved being involved with such an amazing group of spouses. After a few years on the mainland, the Navy sent us back to Hawaii. We love our submarine ohana here and look forward to the next year!
I have been a PHSOSA member for six years and have volunteered as a committee chair for Childcare, Nominations & Elections, Membership, and Historian. Most recently, I served as the 2019-20 VP. Finding a passion for supporting my sub ohana, I have supported my command communities as FRG President and VP for a total of three terms. I have also served on the Pearl Harbor Submarine Spouses’ Charity Association (PHSSCA) Board as Silent Auction Chair and as Auction Gold Chair.
