I was born in Laurens, South Carolina and retired from the U.S. Army in 2017 after serving on active duty for over 34 years, with multiple combat deployments to Afghanistan, Iraq, Kuwait, and Qatar. I now call Fayetteville, NC my home.
I became a Probe in May 2012, and a Full Patch member in November 2012.
I have chaired and served on many committees within the Chapter, to include Chapter Troop Leader, Vice President and currently Chapter President.
I enjoy riding, and the camaraderie of my fellow bikers, Soldiers and Troopers throughout the National Association of Buffalo Soldiers and Troopers Motorcycle Club.
I was born in Chattanooga, Tennessee, but lived most of my childhood and adolescent years in Sheffield, Alabama. I attended Sheffield City Schools and graduated from Sheffield High School. I also graduated from the North Carolina Theological Seminary.
I joined the military in 1985 and proudly served in the U.S. Army for 22 years. The majority of my military career was spent between Fort Wainwright, AK and Fort Bragg, NC. I was also stationed at Fort Benning, GA, Camp Hovey, Korea, and served as a U.S. Army Recruiter in Knoxville, TN. During my military career, I deployed to Afghanistan and Iraq and served during Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom. I retired from the U.S. Army in 2007 and began my career as a Department of Defense Civilian employee in Information Management.
I was voted in the Buffalo Soldiers Motorcycle Club in January 2016. During my time as a Buffalo Soldier, I have served as the Asst. Troop Leader, Christmas Chairman, and Plans Chairman. As Vice President, I plan to uphold the legacy of the Buffalo Soldiers, while serving the community with dignity and respect.
I was born in St. Louis, MO, where I lived until around the 7th grade then moving to California. Both of my parents served in the military as well as numerous family members. I eventually went on to do the same. I’ve done two tours to Iraq and a couple of different duty stations. I am the proud wife (of an active duty service member, also a Buffalo Soldier), mother and grandmother.
I became a full patch member in March of 2017. I was honored to become a part of such a highly respected organization. I enjoy the community service we do and seeing the faces of the lives we impact as we ride across the country while honoring the legacy of the Buffalo Soldiers.
In my short time I have been able to meet some of the most wonderful people within and outside of this organization. I’m looking forward to meeting more and the journey we travel. I have held a few positions within the two chapters I have been in so far, all while still learning and passing on the knowledge and legacy of our Founder Dream. BUFFALO!!!!
