Born in Long Island, & many travels growing up lead me to a small town in CT where I graduated & was blessed with a full academic scholarship to the University of Notre Dame. Had the opportunity to walk onto the team coached by Bob Davie for a year that was ended by injury after the spring game. I exited the team but finished school with an MIS Degree from the Mendoza School of Business. My roots are entrenched in service, volunteering in the church and assisting my grandparents with Meals on Wheels, habitat for humanity projects just to name a few from my younger days. During college, I continued my service activities working projects in lower income communities during my summer & winter breaks. After graduation, I was focused more of my time on working directly with the youth providing resources to help them to avoid negative circumstances &/overcome obstacles faced. I coached youth basketball & pop warner through the time I was married. After marriage, I realized more was needed & was honored to team with Reggie, Randy & Tom to have a much greater impact in a leadership role to affect change. I remain committed to help my community & others who are disenfranchised get opportunities to succeed.
