Like all West Greenwich citizens, I love this town and care about it’s future. I have raised my family here and actively serve the community. Since moving here in 1995, I have been a volunteer in our schools, School Improvement Team member, a 4-H volunteer, a Trustee on the Louttit Library Board and currently serve on the EWG Senior Project Steering Committee.
Prior to being elected to the Council, I was concerned about the safety of students on our school buses and was instrumental in the passage of epi-pen legislation which protects our children with allergies while riding on school buses.
I am actively involved in promoting the appreciation and respect of agriculture and animals. As such, I have been invited to serve as an Eastern States Trustee, am a member of the 4-H Dairy Committee at Eastern States Exposition in Springfield, MA, serve as the Guernsey Breed Representative for the New England Guernsey Classic, Co-chair the Washington County Fair Working Steer program, and have served as a judge for FFA competitions & as an Assistant Coach for our RI 4-H Dairy Quiz Bowl teams. I am honored to have been presented with the RI 4-H Outstanding Volunteer Award. It is through these venues, and that as an animal owner, that I am able to share my love of animals and educate the public. I am supportive of local farms and value locally grown.
I understand the importance of, and will do my best to protect, the rural character of West Greenwich, the quality of our schools, and support local businesses. I am honored to serve as your Councilwoman and will always do my very best for the entire town of West Greenwich. Please feel free to contact me at 397-7060.
