Pam MorganDirector Unit 1 


Cheryl Kasdorf
Director Unit 2 Cheryl has lived in Yavapai County since 1976. At first sight, she recognized this land as home. When looking to establish her Naturopathic Medical practice in 1998, she chose Cottonwood because of the people she knew here and the small-town feel. She put down her roots in 2013 by buying a home in the Verde Villages. Cheryl enjoys stargazing, gardening, hiking, and daily walks to the pond with her dog, a welcome break from writing and creating health-building courses. Seeking community beyond her patients and the medical world, Cheryl is getting involved locally to see what magic can happen.

Paul ColemenDirector Unit 8Hi my name is Donald Coleman, my friends call me Paul.  I have 3 adult children, and while they are all 3 quite different, I am very proud of each of them.  I have been married for the last 7 years and we are enjoying our retirement. While working I served 26 years in Special Education as a teacher and program director, primarily with students with behavior disorders. My experience also includes five years teaching in prison. I finished my career as a college professor in teacher education programs and college counselor with adult with disabilities. I have two Masters Degrees in Education and a Reading Specialist Certificate. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Secondary Education/Social Studies and an Associate Degree in Juvenile Justice. Since retirement I have started a home tutoring program, Cottonwood Tutoring, specializing in helping students with disabilities and behavior issues. I have written two books, horror, my favorite genre, and a horror stage play. I also have five children’s books and one Easter stage play for kids. I am presently writing a third book, The Bell. My hobbies include swimming, biking, and pickle ball. My wife and I travel extensively throughout the year, including Ireland, Bali, Virgin Islands, Western Canada and the Redwoods. I hope to spend next winter on a Caribbean Island and next summer in Stockholm. I am a child of the 1960’s and yearn for those days of enlightenment again. My idea of a great night is sitting in a dark room, with only candle light, watching a horror movie. My greatest wish for our future is we all decide to take great care of our beautiful earth.

Kathleen GreenMember at Large
Membership
My name is Kathleen Green and this is my second year as Membership Chair.  My husband and I moved to Verde Village about 4 years ago, after retiring from careers in the Phoenix Valley.  The Verde Valley was the perfect choice for us.  But we didn’t know anyone here, so I joined as a volunteer for the birding festival, and then from there, met some VVPOA residents and board members who got me involved on the VVPOA Board! Since that time, my husband and I helped restore the Adobe Clubhouse, put on the first VVPOA High Tea, helped organize the Halloween drive-through during COVID last year, and I manage the monthly membership duties, including sending out renewal reminders and solicitations for residents to become members, and maintain the membership database. During Covid, I received my Master Gardener certification. Now I do volunteer work at Montezuma Well in that capacity.  We are currently working on a native seed restoration garden for pollinators, and doing some gopher barriers around a large cultural garden that will be returned to use next spring. We love to camp, travel, do art, knit, work on home gardens and projects and spend time with our kids and grandkids.  My husband is a luthier by hobby and so he likes to practice playing and restoring stringed instruments for people.  We have a rescue cat…..actually, he has us, and we really jump to meet his every need!  We even travel with him when he takes us to Rocky Point! Since we moved here, some of our family members and dear friends have also moved here, so now we are surrounded by family, old friends and now new friends too, thanks to acquaintances made during volunteer work and classes we have taken! There is so much to do here!  We love living here!
