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.

My wife Stephanie and I moved to Cliff Rose in September 2020, and we're happy to call Cliff Rose home. I was raised in New Jersey and before coming to Arizona I lived in New York, Ohio, Vermont and California. I studied psychology at Columbia and ultimately got a degree in Music from Antioch College.
My working career began in the music business, as a record producer and audio engineer. A freelancer for most of my life, I never had a "regular" job until I was in my 40s. Sit me down sometime and I'll give you the whole story. Now, I'm on my own again as an independent software developer.
I acted as Treasurer and Secretary on the board of the HOA at my last home. I'm looking forward to serving my new neighbors and hope to get to know many of you personally.
Rich and his wife Tencha moved from Houston, Texas to Prescott in 2014 and he eventually retired at the end of 2014 after 45 years in the passenger and air cargo industry. Relocation was a way of life for Rich and the family having lived in 6 different states over the years and they are truly happy to say that the Cliff Rose community is one of the best.
Having recently volunteered to step into the role as Maintenance Director, he quickly organized new contracts for the care and maintenance of our common area properties, setting priorities for appearance and safety. In spite of a limited budget, he believes we have several good landscaping companies lined up for this year's growing season and you're likely to see Rich monitoring their activity as well as putting in some of his own work to bring our common area lots up to homeowner's expectations.
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. I especially love the friendly small-town feel with everyone I meet. I am so glad I live in Cliff Rose, because it is family friendly and filled with genuine compassionate neighbors.
