We’re volunteers that work hard for you and we love doing it. But we’re residents, too, and enjoy walking in our free time. When you encounter us in the community, please honor our personal time and conduct your HOA business by email. THANKS!
I’ve lived in Somerset since 2018 after retiring from a rewarding career. My friend Buddy and I enjoy spending time at his Smith Lake place or cruising the Caribbean. Most residents have met Buddy; he has voluntarily helped our community with drainage, landscaping and other small projects.
Serving on the Board and attending our social events has helped me get to know most of Somerset’s wonderful residents. My goal is to be a caring, kind President who makes our community even better by ensuring adherence to the covenants which govern us and protect our property values.
Being the rookie on your Board, and in our community, I feel Blessed to enjoy living here and being an active member of the Somerset family. When my wife Lynn and I moved here (she’s on the Social Committee) in May 2021, we felt like we had moved into our dream home and neighborhood. We still feel that way today and it’s why I feel it’s such an honor and privilege to serve on the Board and keep our community an amazing place to live.
Let’s all have a Blessed day…each and every day.
My name is Joanne but you can call me Jo. My husband Mark and I moved here in 2008 because we fell in love with the size, location and beauty of Somerset. I served on the ARC Committee in the past and have been your Secretary since 2017. I volunteer because I believe in the importance of upholding our neighborhood’s HOA standards and covenants. I enjoy keeping up my backyard sanctuary, spending time with my best friend Josie The Pug, and riding my bike.
As Board treasurer I’m responsible for the association’s funds, securities and financial records by overseeing billing, collections and disbursements, and coordinating the development of the association’s proposed annual operating budget and reserve allocations. In addition, I monitor the budget and report on the association’s financial status throughout the year, as well as oversee year-end reporting. In concert with Hughes Property Management, I ensure that all association funds are collected, disbursed, invested and reported accurately and remain in compliance with the association’s by-laws and governing documents. A big shout out to Mary of Hughes Properties who does a great job of taking care of us.
My wife Monica (Isper) is a native of Brazil, as well as being Arabic. She speaks Portuguese, Spanish, Arabic, and English and loves to cook and entertain.
The Member at Large is a position used to train members for service on the Board. The Member at Large becomes aware of the business and financial methods of the HOA and can serve as a substitute for any member’s position if needed. They lead special projects and lend their expertise to other Board members as needed and vote on any issues brought before the HOA.
