Richard Phillips
Treasurer
I was born in Roswell, New Mexico in 1956, graduated from West Point in 1979, qualified as an Army Ranger, and served for several years as an officer in the United States Army. In 1989, I graduated with a Master of Science degree in Physics from the Naval Post Graduate School, completing my thesis work at Los Alamos National Laboratory. I then spent three years as a Research Associate at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, before completing my tour of duty as an Army Officer. I now live in Phoenix with my lovely wife, Carol, where, having expanded the universe of my bestselling science fiction series, The Rho Agenda, I am now focused on his new epic fantasy series, The Endarian Prophecy. I have joined three toastmasters clubs, Ahwatukee, Dobson Ranch, and Dobson @ Sunset Toastmasters clubs and am really enjoying the comraderie.

Jo Sumner, ACB,CL
Programmer
Jo was born in the UK, spent 4 years living in South Africa and moved to Arizona in 2009. She has been married to Michael for 31 years and they have 3 wonderful children and two precious Grandchildren. She joined Toastmasters in May 2012 to improve her public speaking skills – she readily admits that although she is quite a talker, speaking to groups she does not know is way out of her comfort zone. She has held the officer role of Secretary, VP of Membership, VP of Education and President. She has spent the last 18 years as COO of the Beech Group helping seniors live in their own homes staying healthy and safe, she retired at the beginning of 2018. She is looking forward to more travel, spending time with her family, finding ways to give back that are both purposeful and meaningful and working on projects that interest her.

Colleen graduated from the University of Arizona in May 2013 with a B.A. in Sociology and Anthropology. Colleen is currently a Residential Counselor for a non-profit in Phoenix, Arizona. Being an entrepreneur at heart, Colleen strives to learn how to build her own progressive non-profit that will better the community of adults with intellectual disabilities. She was introduced to Toastmasters by her uncle, Tom Osterday, and cousin, Gillean Barkyoumb. Colleen has always enjoyed public speaking but wants to continue strengthening her skills to become a more effective communicator. She has been a member of DRTM since August 2015.
