New Member - Suzanne Wulff
St. Joseph Catholic Church, Placentia
I am extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to be a part of a group of Rotarians that share a common purpose. Like my fellow Rotarians I am drawn to serve my local community. I have experienced the joys and benefits of residing in the City of Placentia and have made a conscious decision to actively participate in community life. I am honored to be a part of an interactive network and fellowship that collectively make it a priority to serve others.
My dedication and hard work has enabled me to continually give back to the community of Placentia. I am a parishioner and the Business Manager at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Placentia. As business manager, I am the steward of the physical, financial and personnel resources of the parish. My faith, work and life experiences are continually providing me with the skills and resources needed to be a productive member of society.
I look forward to the journey that lies ahead with Rotary!
