Meet your New RMCA Board Of Directors
Deborah hails from the fog shrouded coast of far northern California and is a desert modern architecture and California history enthusiast. She retired from a career as a concert production company owner where she booked talent and produced live music shows along with presenting annual outdoor music festivals. Her educational background includes a BA in Economics and Development from Humboldt State University. She and her husband have been enjoying their Linkletter (circa 1957) mid-century home along with the quiet desert beauty of Magnesia Falls Cove since 2013.
Susan lived in Breckinridge, Colorado and Studio City, California. Her passion has always been art, architectural design, and the beauty of nature. She took art and design classes at Los Angeles Valley College and owned a motion picture and television catering company where she was treasurer. She is now retired and living in Magnesia Falls Cove in a 1956 Mid-Century Linkletter home.
Carol has lived in the desert her entire life. She was born in Yuma and has lived in the Coachella Valley since 1971. Her educational background was accomplished at the local and nearby regional colleges and universities, COD, CSSB and UCR. Her interests lie in outdoor activities such as bicycling, hiking and desert preservation. She and her husband have lived in Magnesia Cove since 1989.
Marie grew up in New York City and also lived in London and Los Angeles prior
to moving to the Bay Area in 1999, where she began a career in the financial
technology and research industry. She served on the Board of her condominium
at 200 Brannan, San Francisco as Treasurer, and found many cost savings for
the Association. Marie was an Airbnb host and purchased a home in Magnesia
Falls Cove 9 years ago as a vacation rental. However, she fell in love with the
area and moved into that home as a full-time resident in 2013.
Karen is a Northern California native and currently a Long Beach business owner who moved to the Coachella Valley in November 2020. A prior 20-year career history in the cosmetic and fashion industries as a Designer, Marketer and Product Developer, will inspire a creative and fresh approach to the RMCA board. Her experience with start-up brands and business development, challenges her to strategize and problem-solve on a tight budget. She’s hoping to collaborate with the board and residents to make the great City of Rancho Mirage, an even better place to call home.
Anne (past president and board member over many years) is a native Californian who flew the coup for her college days at the University of Denver followed by an MA from Michigan State University. Her career took her to Washington State University and a Fulbright stint in Australia. She returned to Washington where she held various State positions in higher education ending as the appointed Chair of the community college system. Moving to Seattle she created, with her partner, an educational technology business which provided enough funds to retire to the desert and purchase a home on a 1/2 acre in Magnesia Falls Cove. She is now living in Sun City and will act as a liaison from the RMCA Board to the Magnesia Falls Cove Modernism Tour Committee following which she will disappear into the sunset.
