Cindy Laird


Bill and I moved to Cox Meadows in Oct 1979 (before children). We both have been in Arizona since the early/late 60’s. We raised both our kids Kristi (33) and Tracy (32) – they share the same birth date! They both went to Shaw Butte and Thunderbird H.S. We have 4 grandkids and we are very fortunate, both families live here. I have been in the banking business since 1978 specifically in the commercial lending area as a support person. I am a graduate of ASU with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Communications with an emphasis on American Sign Language. My dream job is to interpret for the Deaf or teach at the community college level – but in the meantime – 36 years later – banking will have to do! I enjoy reading, swimming, target shooting, Kenpo Karate and playing racquetball, even though my husband Bill, creams me every time! (and of course playing with the grandkids). Bill is a former custom cabinet-maker (21 years) but now works for USPS for the past 15 years – poor guy!

I have been making a regular effort to become more engaged in our community as I see the positive effect it has had over the years. I would really like to see 75% neighborhood participation in Nextdoor as that is a wonderful tool to keep in touch with all that is going on around us, but on a much more personal level, not to mention how convenient it is.
