Originally from Lexington, Kentucky, she has called Eagle Point and the Upper Rogue area, her home for most of the last 22 years. One of her first memories of Eagle Point was attending the 4th of July parade. It was during this visit that Cindy was captivated by the small town charm and wonderful people she had met. In a matter of months, she and her family moved to the area. Cindy’s two sons, Kevin and Thomas, are both grown now, but spent part of their youth growing up in Eagle Point. With her children grown, Cindy’s favorite leisure activity is spending time with her friends and horses, exploring trails and the magnificent forests of Southern Oregon.
Serving the City of Eagle Point and its citizens is an endeavor she graciously embraced and hopes to continue to serve for a very long time.
