MaryAnne Povey

I love OV! Serving my community is something that I enjoy immensely! The people, the businesses, the schools, and the community have become an integral part of my life. Over the past 20 years, my involvement has grown steadily to the point where I literally go to bed thinking about what I’ll be doing for OV, to waking up and doing it! Whether it’s writing for the Orangevale View (regular contributor), raising $ for the Casa Roble Booster Club (for many years & counting), to growing the business community via the OV Chamber of Commerce (Board of Directors), to planning the next service event for the OV-FO Kiwanis Club (founding member), and finally covering the “good news” on Orangevale Live, (executive director), that’s pretty much my life – plus being a mom to five awesome kids and wife to a wonderful hubby for 26 years. Whew! I wouldn’t change a thing!
