Dayle Quigley grew up in Baltimore, Maryland the daughter of a nuclear physicist and reading specialist. Although neither were in Rotary, she watched them give of themselves to the local community just as their parents had done. They instilled in her a sense of gratitude and a desire to do good in the world. It has defined her life. It should also be noted that they also instilled a love of travel and the belief that the world was just a step beyond her own back door.

Dayle traveled to Pennsylvania, California, Okinawa Japan, and Vermont prior to moving and settling down in the beautiful Midwest nestled in Hayward Wisconsin. She lived in Hayward for 23 years raising her children and just recently moved to St Paul. While in Hayward, Dayle co-founded NorthWoods Strings, a program providing string instrument instruction to children in the Hayward and LCO School districts.  She was their executive director for 10 years. In 2009 she became the volunteer Medical Director for American Birkebeiner Ski race and in 2017 became the Medical Director for their year-round events. One of her biggest projects was forging a relationship between the LCO College and the Hayward Area Rotary club through NY City’s Public Theater National Mobile Unit with the performance of Sweat in October of 2018 and a community art show in April of 2019.

Professionally, Dayle is an Emergency Physician. She trained as a Family Physician through the USAF and spent her active duty time in California and Okinawa Japan. With three small children, she switched to the ED in 1998 and has never looked back. She loves her job not only because of being able to care for her neighbors but also because of the opportunities it has afforded her. She has taught medical providers in Cap Haitian, Haiti; medical and military members in La Paz and Uyuni, Bolivia; and most recently members of the International Organization for Migration in Bangkok, Thailand.

Dayle joined Rotary after sending her daughter to Lativa as a Rotary Exchange student. She was so impressed she jumped right in. She has been president three times serving in 2010-11, 2015-16, and 2016-17. She has been on the District Grants Subcommittee since 20–, and an Assistant Governor for Area 14 since 2018. She has chaired her club’s Rotary Foundation committee, worked as the Youth Exchange Officer, and facilitated Visioning Programs around the district. She traveled to Delhi India in 2011 for a National Immunization Day, to Brazil for the International Convention in 2015, and to Israel with her husband on a Cultural Exchange in 2018.

Dayle is married to Scott Arndt, a caterer in Fort Atkinson Wisconsin. She has three children Corrine Malcolm (Stephen Ettinger), Ian Malcolm (Abby Huck), and Thomas Malcolm. In her spare time, she likes to eat her husband’s cooking, work out, play her musical instruments, and get lost in a good book.
