Quality Assurance Monitor - Vice President
What I would like the membership to know about me.
Well, I am a wife of 30 years, mother, grandmother, stepmother, foster mother and adoptive mother. I
am retired, (3xs) and believe that life is what you make it. I live by the mantra, if you don’t want to get
burned, stay out of the kitchen or, if you are big enough to do, then be big enough to deal with the
consequences, because while you can choose an action…you cannot choose the reaction. My life
scripture: Col 3:23 And whatsoever you do, do it well, as unto the Lord, not unto men.
I am a retired Police Commander from the DC Police Department having spent 28 years in service.
While I worked the field and investigations, to include Internal Affairs and white-collar crimes, my
lifelong love was and is youth. After relocating to Raleigh, I then joined the City of Raleigh Parking
Enforcement inception team. We were able to hire and train great folks to deal with the sheer ugliness
of people who thought it appropriate to curse out, spit on and try to run over, unarmed men and
women simply doing their job. I left this position and then was rehired six months later. I have since
I firmly believe that any job you do, you should do it well or not do it at all. Your behavior impacts all
those in your profession and people remember the bad much longer than the good.
I initially went looking for an allergy friendly dog that my grandson could sleep with. When I chose my
breeder, I also chose a friend. I decided to breed because secretly I probably missed my calling in the
medical field and loved the idea of learning the science behind dog breeding. I believe everyone I
encounter can and often does teach me something, and no one should be ridiculed for trying to learn.
I look forward to being considered as a member of the A.L.C.A., team and to be of service to those
who might need assistance.
If we all do it well, produce the best pups possible, the reputation of the ALD breed and all the
breeders of the ALD can only explode. This is a fabulous breed and I love nothing better than
producing fabulous pups.
