Masonic Bio

In 2005 I attended my first Northwest York Rite Regional Conference in Boise, Idaho. Although present as an Oregon Grand Chapter officer, it was the General Grand Council’s presentation on the Cryptic Masons Medical Research Foundation that impressed me the most. Since that time, I have had the opportunity to work three Grand lines and, fifteen years later, I still believe that the Cryptic Masons Medical Research Foundation is the Masonic charity that has the potential to serve literally millions of patients in the future. I have supported CMMRF with both time and monetary contributions on a regular basis. It has been an honor to serve as a CMMRF Board of Directors Trustee through the 2017-2020 triennium, and I humbly ask for your support to continue to serve during the 2020-2023 triennium.
