International Service Director 2016

Service Above Self

I have taken great pleasure in being a member of North Fresno Rotary for the past twenty-five years.  Rotary gives one an opportunity to meet great people, develop long lasting friendships, and serve the local community together.

Impact

Rotary also has and continues to make significant contributions to the international community.  As the current International Service Chair, I am overseeing the various international projects our local club is a part of for this 2016-2017 year.  These include, but are not limited to:  a solar heating and energy project for a health care facility in Gyumri, Armenia, supporting educational facilities in West Africa and Guatemala, and providing funds for specific international emergency relief efforts.

Service Learning

I have previously served in North Fresno Rotary as chair of Community Service and Vocational Service.  I have found that in learning more about Rotary's various avenues of service, one finds that fellow club members have a wide range of creative talents and passions for serving which inspires one to "come along side of their leadership" and serve together.

As a local dentist in Fresno and CEO of CedarNorth Dental, I invite and encourage business people in various careers to visit our club and see what all the excitement is all about!
