Board of Directors


If you have a question, comment or concern for the Cypress Ridge Board's consideration, you are encouraged to present your subject during the Open Forum session at the next regularly scheduled board meeting. Subjects for the board that may require a lengthy discussion and dialog can be given in advance to the board by clicking on the board member you wish to talk to, but generally the President. In this way, the board can better prepare an answer for you at the meeting.

“It has truly been a pleasure to meet the residents of Cypress Ridge over the past several years at either the social events or board meetings. It has been a wonderful experience to learn about how the community operates to meet its needs and the needs of the residents. Although I have never served on the board of an Owners Association, I do know from my career and work experience that it takes patience, sometimes a fresh perspective, and thoughtful collaboration for a management team to be successful. I view the Cypress Ridge board as our team who thoughtfully collaborates and partners to meet the goals and needs of our community and residents. As homeowners we have a stake in the cleanliness and safety of our neighborhood. For some, our home is our biggest asset, so what drives me to serve and actively participate on the board is to do whatever I can to protect our assets, while engaging all neighbors and giving back to the community! I believe that my professional leadership and skills can be applied towards the achievement of these goals that will benefit our community and its residents.”

Cypress ridge is a great development and I would like to help keep it that way. My neighbors have been nothing but great and the neighborhood is safe. I love people and you might know me because I walk and ride my bike daily in Cypress Ridge. I'm a retired junior high teacher that mainly taught in Clovis Unified near Fresno for most of my career. I still teach part-time to keep active. I would like the opportunity to represent the residents of Cypress Ridge on the board! I will do my best to keep our neighborhood a great place to live!
