Ann Nash - Crime Watch

Richardson resident since 1969 and have lived in my present home since 1971. My son went to Arapaho Elementary, West and then Richardson High School.

Member of Arapaho United Methodist Church and enjoy the spiritual growth and energy that I get each time I’m there.

Love cats and dogs but mainly a “doggy person’. I am owned by three girls: a bichon poodle mix, a malti-poo and a poodle. Two of my girls are rescues from Operation Kindness.

Retired after 40 years of service from BlueCross BlueShield of Texas. Retirement has been a great time since there is finally time to become involved in local activities. As membership chairman for AHNA, I’ve enjoyed welcoming new neighbors and new members. I drive Crime Patrol and am hopeful this sends notice that we are neighbors who watch! Since I drive almost every street every week, I feel I’ve really bonded with our neighborhood. I watch the city council meetings every week and actually enjoy (most of the time) haring what’s happening in our city.

I live in a great city and am happy I can do a little to give back to Richardson by being active in AHNA and driving crime patrol
