Together We Are Making Tulsa County Stronger
As a broadcast journalist for 26 years, I told the stories of people who weren’t out to grab headlines–they were just out to help folks who needed it. And they were out to do the work that improves their neighborhoods and to do what it takes to improve their communities. I loved telling those stories and now I get to work side by side with the people who are out there really making a difference.
I grew up in Muskogee and after high school, graduated from Oklahoma State University in 1976. After a career in television broadcasting, I became Director of Community Relations and Vision Implementation for Tulsa Mayor Bill LaFortune and later the Chamber of Commerce, where I was able to focus on passing and implementing Tulsa’s Vision 2025 projects.
I can’t imagine a different life! Patrick and I have 2 great pups Moonie and Benny- that allow us share their home. And we are so proud to share our lives with Gulnara Taragachova and her daughter Samaya who live in the Netherlands.
