Meet The Board of Directors
The Voyager Pickleball Club's mission is: To promote pickleball through play, education, drills, clinics, and competitive tournaments for residents and visitors as well as providing opportunities for social activities.
Our overall theme is to encourage sportsmanship, camaraderie and safety through fun & exercise.
Hiking, backpacking,crafting,and Pickleball are the activities that fill my days. Zena, my dog, is a Pet Partner certified dog that helps me with my love for volunteering. Kevin, my husband, and I live in Sisters, OR when we are not at Voyager.
I first came to Voyager in 2002 to visit my sister and her husband, but it wasn't until I retired in 2013 that I tried pickleball. After years of playing almost every day, a knee replacement and an Achilles tendon slowed me down some, but I still love it! I go back to my home state of Minnesota in the summers and over Christmas to spend time with the rest of my family and my Minnesota friends... and of course to play pickleball!
Neal and I are full time Voyager residents moving here in April 2020. A Pennsylvania girl, I graduated from Penn State University with a degree in sociology and psychology. I retired in 2010 after owning a mail and parcel shipping center in Pottstown, Pennsylvania for 21 years. I became addicted to pickleball soon after being introduced to the game in the summer of 2020. I want to share my enthusiasm for the game by encouraging fun on the courts and mentoring new players.
Player and Constituent Representative
My husband and I chose Voyager in 2016 because of the many activities, and we stayed because of the friendships. My calendar is booked with hiking, biking, golf, pickleball, Zumba and playing cards/games with friends. When we go back to Minnesota for the summer we add boating and spending time with our three grandkids to our busy schedules.
