Carol Spizzirri

Carol Spizzirri, USD, Vice President

Born and raised in Milwaukee, WI, graduate of Mount Seniaro College, Spizzirri raised three daughters until 1985 when the family moved to Illinois. While residing in Chicago, her second born was killed in a traffic accident that prompted her to form a non-for-profit dedicated to the enhancement of the emergency medical service profession by passing state and national legislation and authoring age appropriate state approved Pre-EMS curriculums.

The events of 9-11 heightened the Foundation's Pre-EMS purpose, requiring her to testify in Washington, DC, in front of U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft, Secretary of Defense Tom Ridge and Health and Human Service Secretary Tommy Thompson on the "Bystander's role in emergencies," which was in part a "White Paper" to President George W. Bush. In 2002, her first born died of Lupus, as the Foundation became the second affiliate of the newly formed U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Citizen Corp.

She was elected SMMRA's Vice President in 2012 after serving two years as the Palomar Estates West's Representative. In 2013, Spizzirri was appointed to San Marcos' Accord Lease Committee to negotiate and deliberate the City's Rent Control Ordinance between manufactured homeowners and landowners and serves on SMMRA's Lease Accord Committee.

Spizzirri continues her public service as Search and Rescue Coordinator for Palomar Estates West's emergency preparedness "READY" team and is a member of the San Marcos' CERT team after extensive training and a DOJ and FBI screening.

She enjoys her quite time traveling, writing novels and as a columnist.

Laurie DeMaine

Laurie DeMaine, Secretary

I was born in Santa Monica, California and lived most of my life in San Diego County. I married here and raised two children which produced three grandchildren who are the light of my life. While raising my children, I worked mostly in the Real Estate Industry where I spent 15 years in Escrow and Mortgage Lending.

In 2003, we left California for business reasons and then returned a decade later to San Marcos, CA. We now live in Palomar Estates East, a 55+ community where I work as a Realtor. Being back in Real Estate, I decided to focus on the senior community because of my work experience in the home health care industry. Blending my work backgrounds allows me to provide good advice and guidance to seniors buying or selling their home.

I was receiving so many questions about park issues, I decided to get involved in learning more about mobile home resident's rights and became involved in SMMRA in 2015.
