DC has lived and worked in the Village since 2002, retiring in 2017.
He currently serves on the board of the Balboa Yacht Club as the membership chairman, and since 2017 has worked to help grow the membership from 75 to our current membership of 340.
He joined the VEBF in 2018 and serves as President, working to spread the word of our organization throughout the Village.

Upon moving to Hot Springs Village in 2006, John Chapman and his wife Celinda enjoyed having four generations of family members living in the Village for several years.
John retired to the Village after a 36 year career in video production and sales, and started working at the local radio station, KVRE, where he is still employed part time. An avid cyclist, he enjoys riding on Village roads and trails, as well bike trails around Arkansas and other states. He occasionally rides with the informal Ageless Bikers Club, and attends monthly meetings of the American History Club.
A past annual contributor to the Village Employees Benefit Fund, becoming a board member in 2020 gives him an opportunity to “help the Fund grow and continue the mission of thanking Village employees for their hard work and dedication.”
Ryan has been an Ameriprise financial advisor for the last 20 years including operating the Ameriprise office in Hot Springs Village since 2010.
He joined the VEBF board in 2012 and has served as Board Member, President, and is currently serving as Vice President.
Ryan enjoys playing golf, especially in Hot Springs Village. Most of all, he enjoys spending time with his wife Heather, daughter Carlie, and son Trent.
My husband Bob and I have lived in the Village for almost 10 years and feel like we found our little bit of paradise. Many times, we look at each other and think… “are we on vacation?”
We raised our family in Algonquin, IL and knew that retiring in IL was out of the question with the high real estate taxes. With my background in Accounting, I retired from working as a Credit Analyst at McGraw-Hill and our plans brought us here after we had purchased a lot in HSV in 1999.
I enjoy Mahjong, Hand & Foot, bowling, knitting, reading, visiting shut-ins, and meeting up with friends. A current member of HSV Republican Women’s Club having served for the last 4 years as Treasurer. A very active member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church, serving with many ministries and volunteering. Also, Secretary/Treasurer of our Church bowling league.
After being on several POA Committees in the past few years, most recently the Outdoor Pool Sub-Committee, I wanted to continue to serve in some manner. I chose to work with the VEBF and became the Treasurer. To be able to help recognize our POA employees is important as they are the heart and soul of the Village. We just had family visiting this summer and they so enjoyed the many amenities and the overall beauty of HSV; that, in large part, is due to the hard work and dedication of the employees that work here each day.
Jeff moved to the Village in 2016 from Southern California.
Jeff served as president and CEO of a corporation that specialized in distressed businesses with restructuring and acquisitions.
Currently, he is the Commodore of the Balboa Yacht Club, a Board Member of the VEBF, and a past member of the POA Recreation committee.
I was born and raised in this great state of Arkansas. I went to the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. I retired after almost 25 years at the law firm of Wright, Lindsey, and Jennings, a wonderful place to work.
I am a member of Bethel Lutheran Church in Grandville, MI. I have been the church treasurer for 18 years. I am an associate member of Faith Lutheran here in the Village. I am a member in the NSDAR (National Society Daughters of American Revolutionary War). I am serving as Regent for the Village Chapter of DAR "Akansa" in the Village.
I chaired a state level committee "250 America". In 2016 our Constitution was 250 years old. I work with Arkansas Freedom Fund. This is a group that just helps Arkansas Veterans. We do a golf outing here in the Village once a year, and a bike challenge. I am also a member of the Ladies Social Golf League here in the Village.
I am married to the love of my life. We share five children, 10 grandchildren, and 7 great grandchildren. We live in Grand Rapids, MI, part time.
Born Yankees, Howard and I found our way to HSV in 2004 from 20+years in Richardson, Texas. We discovered our “quiet” place on Lake Balboa, close enough to Village golf courses. My undergraduate degree is in Speech Pathology and Audiology and I hold a graduate degree in Public Administration. Early years were consumed by three children and working as Executive Director for Montessori schools and county-based day care. In 1986, I was licensed in the securities industry and eventually became a partner in a Dallas-based company involved in the credit and debt resolution industry. I also served as an NASD arbitrator. These two efforts kept me busy for 20 years while we acquired in-law children and 7 grandchildren! I have been active and board involved with Ouachita Children & Family Services, CASA, Mid-America Science Museum, AAUW, Garland County Juvenile Court, and am a member of Christ of the Hills Church. I currently serve as chair of the Sunshine Therapeutic Riding Center. I was a member of the board of directors for the Hot Springs Village Concert Association, privileged to serve as its chair for three years. VEBF is another great opportunity to serve and enrich our wonderful village.
