Native to East Dallas, Sharon grew up with White Rock Lake as a prominent backdrop to her early years – first picnic, first duck feeding, and that all important first big bike ride with just your friends. Her parents remember dances and swimming at the lake during their teen years. The lake has joyfully provided Sharon with many things including a stint at the Dallas Arboretum and the scenic landscape where her husband first popped the question!
Preservation of the natural beauty and sometimes fragile ecosystem of the lake are driving forces behind her participation on the Foundation Board. Keeping White Rock healthy and accessible for all to enjoy on foot, on wheels and on the water is a goal that puts a smile on her face.
