My husband Wayne and I purchased our first RV in 1986, and instantly fell in love with the RV “Lifestyle”. After a few years of traveling the vast majority of the U.S in our new RV, we signed on to work with Southeast Publications as Vice President of Sales. This was the perfect professional marriage, as we were able to earn a living while seeing all of the breathtaking sites this country has to offer.
When we started out with Southeast Publications, there were only two sales teams handling our guest guide accounts. As of today, we are proud to have over 120 bonded and insured sales teams that span North America. After our company’s rapid growth, our Founder and President, Peter Warrick, felt the need to give back to the industry that provided us the opportunity to become what we are today. After extensive research, we decided to provide the camping and outdoor experience to children stricken with cancer was our passion. It didn’t take long before we partnered with KOA and their KOA Care Camps Trust as our charity of choice.
Since 1994, Southeast Publications and their Sales Associates have raised over $630,000 plus in kind donations through auctions for the KOA Care Camps program. Southeast Publications holds an annual auction at each of its National Awards and Training Conferences. No matter the total tallied at the end of each auction, the Southeast Publications’ Corporate Office matches the dollar amount and proudly presents the collected funds to KOA.
As camping and outdoor enthusiasts ourselves, if even one child given the experience through the KOA Care Camps program gets to smile and have fun, the donations and time spent collecting are worth every penny and will serve as motivation to keep supporting the cause for many years to come.
In 2010, our official title was changed to Vice President of Southeast Publications. I lost Wayne in 2012. I am still very involved in the day-to-day operations of the corporate office and sales force, and currently sit on the KOA Care Camps Board of Directors as Treasurer. I have taken great pride in being involved with such a wonderful charity and look forward to helping it grow and assist more children each year.
