President's Welcome

What an honor to be President of the UNA-USA Santa Barbara & Tri-County Chapter. As the second oldest UNA chapter, we have quite a legacy to carry forward. Following in the footsteps of Past President Catherine Dishion, I feel honored to continue the work she began. Thank you!


I have always been a supporter of the United Nations, visiting the UN when possible. To me, it was the place for global dialogue and new solutions to world problems. Little did I know, I would meet former UN Assistant Secretary-General, Dr. Robert Muller. His illustrious career spanned 40 years at the UN. We fell in love, married and for the next 17 years we traveled and spoke to many UNA chapters. I felt so close to the thousands of active UNA members whose educational programs were informing and helping their communities understand and participate in the work of the UN.
