I have lived in many different regions of our country: I was born and raised in the South, moved to the Pacific Northwest after college, attended graduate school in New Jersey, lived in Western New York and the Mountain West with my husband, and chose to settle permanently with our family in Brunswick. This is one of my greatest assets: having experienced the culture and local governance of so many different regions gives me a different perspective to share with the Brunswick community.
Since moving here I have made my family and my community a priority. I have been active in various local organizations, and I’m deeply involved in my daughters’ educations, volunteering at their pre-school in Troy and helping to organize and implement the curriculum for our elementary school co-op. I volunteer at our local organic farm in Brunswick (Laughing Earth Farm) as a working member of their CSA during the growing season. I have also created a sustainable home for my family, including preserving and rehabilitating our historic property, raising and caring for our flock of chickens, planting an orchard, and gardening and canning.
Over the course of my life, I have always looked for opportunities to be involved in my community. Now more than ever, I feel it is essential to model for my children what our patriotic duty of active, involved citizenship looks like. I have volunteered with local and national election campaigns and now I am eager to get involved in public service myself. Join me in working together for the future of Brunswick.
