PASSIONATE ABOUT

  • KIDS!  My own, and everyone else’s! How can we influence the future with these bundles of possibility and hope?
  • Optimism and gratitude– both keep me grounded and positive.
  • Reading – it opens minds, it opens doors, and it opens hearts. 

    FUN FACTS

    • You can find my husband and I on a soccer sideline most nights of the year, cheering on both of our children on various teams.
    • Our favorite family time is spent in Ocean City, NJ, with sand between our toes and taffy between our teeth.
    • I love board games, yoga, escape rooms, time with friends and family, coffee, and  being a mom.
