about me

I started playing bridge from scratch in 2005 after a knee injury which prevented me from doing my usual outdoor activities.  This new pass-time was meant to be temporary during my recovery, but it stuck.   When I am not playing bridge, I love adventure travel, hiking, biking, and spending time with my husband and two sons.  I am also involved in several non profits my friends and I started to support science education.  For the last 30 years I have helped with grand prize judging at our regional science fair and am responsible for preparing our regional science fair winners for international competition.  My husband and I are retired from our three veterinary practices and cafe.

Favorite Bridge Memory
My friends and I volunteered to help an elderly bridge player obtain her last gold points for life master. Our team consisted of two nonlife masters, one brand new life master, and myself. Somehow we managed to defeat several professional teams and in the end ended up second overall for 8 gold points.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
I wouldn't have expected anything less from Kevin. I hope others take note and follow suit.

SiVY Post-Youth NABC Update
Thank you Michael and the village involved in mentoring and helping our youth succeed. We need to invest in our youth.
Spingold Vugraph from Round of 32
If they survive-Mahaffey/Lall and Fleisher/Robinson (biased Rosenberg fan) and Dinkin would be fun to watch. Thanks for getting some matches on vugraph regardless of the team choices!
Bridge: The Next Generation
This is fantastic! Now the focus can go from fundraising to teaching lots of kids-yay!
Bridge: The Next Generation
Jonathan, I back Steve on this 100 percent. For the last 27 years, I have been involved in multiple non profits in Silicon Valley that work with kids and provide merit scholarships/stipends for higher level competition. Scholarships are a powerful tool not only to instill pride and inspire students ...
Bridge: The Next Generation
Excellent article Steve. Having had the opportunity to observe from the inception to all the outstanding programs and successes of SiVY, I can vouch for the incredibleness of this organization. They set huge goals, achieved them, and then kept adding more. It is a great group of dedicated volunteers. You ...
Should Womens' Bridge Events Exist?
Continuing this discussion, I would like to throw a related issue into the discussion. Perhaps the system of titles should be reevaluated. There is quite a disparity in difficulty for obtaining a national win-not just pitting a limited event like women's or senior event against a premier event like ...
My Son's Progression
I am not sure which I like better-this one or the slam hand in Istanbul. Technically I like this one but drama wise the slam hand in Istanbul takes the cake ( : Please keep sharing.
