For almost 2 decades Sharon was involved with the little league program here in Santa Fe, serving as player agent for the Metropolitan Little League most of that time.

Five years ago she returned to Santa Fe and was not only reunited with old friends but made new friends within her community at Campo Allegria hosting regular soirée’s at her apartment.
