Vice President / Secretary

Carol Peel

My husband, Dusty, and I joined CCChapala in February 2014. We have made so many wonderful friends since joining this organization and are both very fortunate. We moved to Ajijic in February 2011 from Nashville, TN.

I have experience as a Regional Operations Manager for a chain of furniture stores in Alabama. Part of this responsibility was day to day operations of all stores, customer service and overseeing warehouse functions. I was responsible for managing operating costs and budget expectations for all facets of the business and to create reasonably and optimistic Profit and Loss Annual Statements.

I was an electronic buyer for a national retail chain after moving to Nashville, TN in 1997 for several years. I then went back into the furniture retail business sales department. I was very successful in that venture for over 10 years until I had to resign under the direction of my physician due to health issues.

Thankfully since our move to Ajijic I have been physically able to lead as close to a normal life as possible for someone with Multiple Sclerosis. I am so blessed for the opportunity to live in this area and to have my life back. I took golf lessons two years ago and really enjoy being able to play golf "eight" days a week as my husband puts it.

My wife and I retired in mid- 2006 and immediately moved from Reading, PA to the Lake Chapala area; we have been full time residents ever since, and plan to spend many more years lakeside. I have been a member in good standing of CCC since January of 2007. I served on the BOD as House Chair in 2008, 2009, and 2011: generating a small profit in 2009 and 2011 on the food and beverage service and coming in under budget every year on the club house expenses. IF elected to the 2016 BOD I would like to serve as Treasurer. My goal would be to bring transparency, fairness and value to the club membership, while seeing that each department adheres to the budget approved by the club membership. I worked in information systems for over 25 years. Retiring from VFC (world’s largest apparel company; 248 on the Fortune 500) after over 22 years of service: I was the CIO of the retail division when I retired in May of 2006. As CIO I was directly responsible for a 5 million dollar budget and was indirectly responsible for another 15 million dollars. I designed, developed, and implemented a retail accounting system that supported a 425 million dollar business; which was ultimately implemented a 2 other VCF retail divisions. In 2002 I was part of the corporate management team charged with overseeing and implementing the Sarbanes/Oxley requirements for all of the VFC’s retail financial systems

House Chair

Laurie Becker-Zibnack

Jeff and I are now in our second year as retirees in Mexico and loving it. We relocated to Vista del Lago 10 months ago and have enjoyed being very active golfers and social members. My educational background is in nutrition and I earned by BS from San Jose State University in 1996. Initially I wanted to become a Registered Dietitian, however while doing my internship at the VA Hospital in San Francisco; I discovered that my true interest was working in Food Service and with the elderly. I was hired by an Assisted Living Company in 1998 as Food Service Director where I was responsible for budget control, ordering, scheduling staff and housekeeping. After one year in this position I was promoted to Executive Director and my responsibilities were to work with and direct the Food Service, Maintenance, Assisted Living and Activities Directors. My Executive Director positions lead me to transfer to a much larger community where we housed independent, assisted and dementia residents. I worked closely with all my Directors in achieving the highest level of satisfaction for our residents in all areas of everyday living. We planned many special events that included residents, staff and outside participants. I found it enjoyable and rewarding working with my staff to create new and exciting events for our residents and for my employees. I pride myself in being a good listener, quick learner, brainstorming and working well with others. I feel I am ready to be a more active member of CCC, and that our members will not be disappointed with the skills I would bring to the club. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
