Vice President/Activities and Communications:
I have lived in Durant Trails for a little over 10 years. I currently am a preschool teacher, a mama to two sweet girls and a silly dog, and a wife to a wonderful husband! I became a member of this board 9 years ago. I started out doing strictly events in the neighborhood and have added things as the years have gone on but the events are where my heart lies. I love creating fun experiences for my neighbors and watching the children really enjoy being a part of this community. This truly is one of the best places to live in Raleigh!
Secretary/Community Watch and Safety:
I retired to Durant Trails in 2009 after many years in law enforcement and security in the Northern Virginia area. I have served on the Board of Directors since 2016. I am responsible for Community Watch & Safety concerns.
After 40 plus years, I retired from the U.S Postal Service. Now I spend my time raising a teenage daughter, keeping my husband busy, being active at church, and serving as member of the Durant Trails Board of Directors (BoD). My position is Chairperson of the Architectural Review Committee (ARC). I've been on the Board and on the ARC since my husband and I moved into Durant Trails in 1999. About 10 of those years, I served as Board president. The ARC reviews all exterior change requests and makes sure the guidelines are followed. Our goal is to keep the Durant Trails community one of the best places to live in Raleigh.
Community Watch and Safety:
I have been living in Durant Trails for almost 2 years now. I joined the board a year and a half ago and serve as co-Security. When I'm not serving on the board, I'm a firefighter in Durham. I'm originally from South Africa, so I've got a funny accent, but don't be intimidated, I'm a pretty easy going guy. I have a beautiful wife and son and we're excited to be adding to the pack this spring! We love taking our son for walks on the Greenway or to the park and the pool in the summer, so don't be shy we love getting to know all of our awesome neighbors in DT!
