I've been playing bridge for over 60 years, seriously for the last 50 or so. Bridge has brought me two wonderful husbands, as well as many wonderful friends.

I'm the COO of the USBF, which means I manage the USBF's selection trials each year and also maintain the USBF website and membership records.

I've been a strong proponent of BBO Vugraph for as long as I can remember (in fact, before it even existed) and have put my money where my mouth is by volunteering to organize Vugraph broadcasts at NABCs as well as USBCs for the last decade or so. That has brought me more friends, whose faces I wouldn't recognize, but whom I happily chat with on BBO.

If you can't find me at my computer or a bridge tournament, I'm at the barn, riding one of my two adult horses, or playing with my new filly.

I confess I had to go to the acbl website to find out how many masterpoints I have and what "rank" that equates to. Masterpoints have never been a big motivator for me. Playing against good players and playing well are more my goals.
