Volunteering has been a part of my life since high school when I accompanied my mom to the help with the care of mentally infirmed in Providence. I was fortunate to spend nine years on the board of Shelter for Women in Providence and nine years of the board of Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, in Maine.
My architectural career has provided me the opportunity to work in both rural and urban settings and in multiple states including all of New England, New York, through the east coast, Colorado, California and St. Maarten providing interaction with multiple codes and cultures.
My desire is to continue to serve in Cromwell, where I live, and want to see this town thrive.
