Current Board 2019-2020
Margaret Drugay, President
A Chicago native, I’ve been in Tucson for over 20 years, in Peter Howell for over 10 years, after moving from the Foothills. I received a doctorate in nursing and had a long career in health care, retiring in 2006. I spend my time volunteering with the American Cancer Society, and have done other volunteer work in India, Africa and China. Clearly I love travel! I’m also a foodie and love going to the great restaurants we have in Tucson. I live on 6th St.
Jason Katterhenry, Vice President
Jason Katterhenry is a 2nd generation Arizonan, and has lived in Peter Howell for 10 years. He came to Tucson in 2001 to attend the University of Arizona where he received a B.S. in Computer Engineering, and continues to work on campus doing IT and web work. He lives on E. 4th St (formerly Crescent Ridge!) with his wife and young daughter.
Paige Ricks, Secretary
I am a 5th generation Arizonan. I grew up in the Phoenix area but fell in love with Tucson when I came here for school. My husband and I decided that we want to raise our family here. We have resided in the Peter Howell neighborhood since 2015 and have loved this tight-knit community.
I graduated from the University of Arizona with a B.S. in Psychology and was a social worker for a number of years, specializing in adult mental health care, child welfare, and juvenile probation. I am currently a stay at home mom to our 3 young children (ages 4, 2, & 1) and I am always looking to take them on fun adventures. You will often find us at the zoo, on a hike, or at the park. I also love reading, genealogy, thrift shopping, volunteering at church, and spending time with friends. We live on Texas Cir.
Nancy Huff, Treasurer
Originally from St. Louis, I have lived in my house on 1st St. in the Peter Howell neighborhood since 1974. I have been involved with the PHNA since it began and have been on the board and served as president in the past. I was also the co-chair of the Broadway/Alvernon Area Plan development process in the late 1990’s.
Being interested in travel and photography, I worked at Jones Photo years ago and am now retired from the University of Arizona. My last position there was as Assistant Registrar at the College of Medicine. I volunteer at PH elementary and at the Loft Cinema. A group of us do weekly neighborhood clean up and we won an award from Tucson Clean and Beautiful. As many neighbors know, I also am pretty aggressive with reporting Code Enforcement violations and reporting graffiti. This is our neighborhood, and we should be proud of it and take care of it.
I have a bachelors degree in industrial engineering with a specialization in finance and marketing. My background includes marketing and product management as well as experience as a financial advisor and trader. In 2003 I got my Real Estate license and I have been a Realtor for over 10 years during which I have been representing a wide variety of clients, whether the transaction involves an entry-level condominium, multi-units, a high-end home or a 1031 exchange. I hold both California and Arizona Real Estate licenses and I belong to the National Association of Realtors as well as the California, Arizona and Tucson associations.
We fell in love with this neighborhood, the architecture, the pride of ownership and the location in the heart of Tucson. All those things make our neighborhood a very special place. I want to help to build a close and warm community and to make our neighborhood one of the most desirable places to live in Tucson. I live on E. 6th St. in Poets Corner.
I am a third-generation Tucsonan. My grandfather arrived in Tucson from San Francisco with the railroad in 1881. My wife and I have lived in the Peter Howell neighborhood since 1974. We live on 4th Street. I love this area and have seen three generations of children grow up here. I graduated from the University of Arizona with a B.A. in journalism and sociology and I have an M.F.A. in cinematography and illustrative photography from Brooks Institute.
I worked at Pima Community College for 36 years as the Director of Media Production and Publications. I have served on several local boards, including the Tucson Museum of Art, KXCI, the Community Foundation of Southern Arizona, and the Tucson Chinese Cultural Center. I enjoy cooking, fishing, and travel. I look forward to serving on the Peter Howell Neighborhood Association board.
My parents met here in 1948, and my siblings and I were born in Tucson at St. Mary’s hospital, not via stork! I’ve lived in the Peter Howell Neighborhood for 41 years: first on Irving Circle and then in 1987 we moved into our current home on 4th St. My husband and I love this neighborhood!
I have a B.A. in creative writing and journalism for science writing from the UofA (go Cats!) where I taught Photoshop. I was a respiratory therapist for 7 years and a locomotive engineer for the Southern Pacific and Union Pacific for 23 years. I am an avid supporter of the arts in Tucson, and volunteer for many organizations including The Loft Cinema, Ben’s Bells, the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, the University of Arizona Museum of Art and in China for TFF. My husband and I love to spend time with friends and family, especially our sons, and we like to travel when we get the chance.
I am a third-generation Tucsonan although the first generation was mostly in Arivaca. After high school, I went onto a short stay in southern California and some years in the Phoenix area. While away, I became a Graduate Gemologist in 2003 and started my own design brand in 2005. Eventually, I moved back to Tucson with my wife in early 2008 for her work and be closer to our families. We live on 4th street with our kids in a ranch style house which was previously owned by my grandparents since the late 50’s.
Once we started a family, I’ve scaled most of my business back to working from home offering contract CAD (computer aided drafting) service so I could be more involved with raising our kids. I love both my family and work passions immensely. We’ve been very happy living in such a great and convenient location and we truly love our neighbors.
I am from Vermont, moved to Tucson after college, have lived in Peter Howell for 25 years and raised my two children here. I work in Health Care currently as a Hospice RN Case Manager. I also volunteer at Primavera men’s shelter. I enjoy hiking, cooking and spending time with family and friends. I live on 6th Street.
