After completing double majors in Family Life and Sociology at Utah State University, I focused on becoming a teacher and later earned my Master’s degree in Psychology from CSU Northridge.
I taught Social Science and Science in Utah, Nevada and California, most recently, teaching AP European History, AP and IB Psychology and advising Mock Trial. As an Instructional Coach and Google Certified Instructor, I taught best practices, digital literacy, and presented at regional and national conferences.
Raised in Utah, I married and raised my family in Newbury Park, CA where I served on the HOA Board and as Architectural Chair for fifteen years. I retired in 2018 and moved to Prescott in 2019. Living in Prescott feels like coming home. I love the natural surroundings, the people and feel so blessed to have landed in Cliff Rose.
An Arizona native by birth, I lived in Phoenix until I was accepted at Vassar College to pursue a degree in the arts. I then transferred to the University of Arizona where I achieved a bachelor’s degree in Management Information Systems (Business Computer Technology). I was recruited by Chevron Information Technology Corporation (CITC) and worked in Northern California where I met my husband, Robert Sledge, while he was stationed at Travis AFB. I have worked in computer technology as a Programmer and Systems Support Analyst for companies like Bank of America, GreenPoint Credit, as well as San Diego Gas and Electric.
I am a mid-western boy from Illinois, retired from IBM after a 30-year career in software, hardware, marketing, and management . I then spent several years in Silicon Valley as a consultant to startups, providing first-hand mentoring, funding assistance, and temporary executive roles. I am currently the Founder and CEO of Startup Professionals, a company that provides products and services to startup founders and small business owners. My wife Libby and I moved to the Cliff Rose community in September of 2017, from Fountain Hills, AZ.
I am an upstate New York (Elmira) girl who has worked and moved all around the country. I have a wealth of experience building relationships with teams of professionals in business, including IBM, The Great A&P Tea Co and Hardinge Brothers Inc., as well as previous HOA boards in Morgan Hill, CA, San Jose, CA, and Fountain Hills, AZ. My husband and I moved to Prescott (our final move) in September of 2017, and love the area. I joined the Cliff Rose board as the Social Director in February 2018.
I am a recent transplant to Prescott, hailing from the snowy world of Minnesota. Having spent my whole life in Minnesota and over twenty years in the finance world, I wanted to make personal and professional changes in my life, so jumped at an unexpected opportunity to move to Prescott. I currently work in office administration at a local church.
My decision to run for the Cliff Rose board stems from a desire to meet more of my new neighbors and get more involved with my new home. I have prior experience with being on a board, having served two non-consecutive terms on my townhome association board in Minnesota. My main focuses during these terms revolved around reducing the number of rental properties and enhancing the overall look of the property while keeping dues low.
I am excited to have escaped the Minnesota winters and very much look forward to serving a term on the Cliff Rose board!
I am a native to the area and have had a very rewarding life. I want to become part of my community and help make decisions for our community. I am a go-getter and will do what I can to help keep Cliff Rose a happy place to reside and call home! The reason that I think I could be a good HOA Board member is to have a voice in my community and be a positive voice for those that are not able to contribute themselves. I was born locally graduated from HUSD then followed that by attending college in Northern Arizona. I had always dreamed of being a software engineer and that is what I currently do for a living. I absolutely enjoy my job developing reports and queries for our local hospitals. My employer is a fortune 500 company headquartered in Kansas City, MO. It is a truly rewarding job to deliver patient outcome to physicians, patients, and our community. To be able to say that my job is serious and can and does save lives is very rewarding! I hope to get to represent my fellow neighbors in the way that they wish to be represented

I moved to Prescott in 2017 from the Bay Area (Pleasanton), now I love calling Prescott my home. I have been blessed to have been married to my best friend for the past 39 years. I am a Realtor who loves helping people find their dream home or help them sell their home to move on to the next journey life brings their way. My hobbies include gardening, kayaking and hiking. We have two grown children with families of their own and we travel to see our 4 grandkids as often as we can. I love living here, because Prescott is a bustling four-season area that people of all ages can enjoy a variety of activities and its rich history.
