Meet the Admin Team

The Southwest District is lucky to have a team of dedicated Kiwanians who volunteer their time to work with the District Board and our Key Clubs. They mentor,  chaperone, play taxi driver and make sure there is continuity to Southwest District Key Club. If you’re interested in joining this great team, please email Karin.

District Administrator

     Howdy Southwest! I am so excited to be heading into my 4th service year as your Key Club Southwest District Administrator. I am a proud member of the Kiwanis Club of Los Alamos (NM). It was in Los Alamos as a sophomore in 1984 at Los Alamos High School where I first joined Key Club. My senior year I had the honor of serving as a Key Club Lt. Governor on the Key Club District Board that I am now charged with supporting. It has been a terrific circle, and I am so proud to serve alongside these amazing young people! In addition to my work as your District Administrator, I have served as a Key Club Advisor, Kiwanis Club Secretary, Club President, and Distinguished Lt. Governor. I am also honored to serve as a Director on the Kiwanis Youth Programs International Board.
