Former Mayor, Pine Knoll Shores
Carteret Health Care Foundation, Chair
Carteret County

“My Leadership North Carolina experience occurred during my first year of my first term as elected mayor of the Town of Pine Knoll Shores. Meeting with leaders across the state was a very beneficial opportunity for me to learn more about the state in general, but governance and leadership in particular. The challenges and opportunities facing the state opened my perspective to the similarities as well as the differences given our diverse geography, histories and cultures. Getting to know the other class participants over the months of the class sessions was especially helpful in increasing my contacts and resources and adding some good new friends. The LNC Class experience has continued to add quality to my life as I’ve expanded my volunteer base in my community.”
