Community participation

Ameriprise proudly supports Wounded Warrior Project and Warriors to Work.

I enjoy lending my skills and expertise to support my community. I have been part of the Sierra Vista community since 1986. Over the years I have coached little league and ponytail softball teams, helped with girl scouts, and supported several non-profit organizations as an officer.

For several years now I have been serving on the board of the Friends of the Sierra Vista Animal Shelter as their treasurer. My role allows me to help the shelter provide extraordinary medical needs.
