Dee has also had a number of roles in the corporate and non-profit world in administration and office management and she is still involved with one in a board member role. No matter where she has lived, Dee has always thought of Wimberley as home since her parents moved here 40 years ago, and she is now, in her retirement, looking forward to bringing her experiences, skills and passion for the theater to the Wimberley Players.
