I was born in Indiana, grew up in Ohio and moved to Pennsylvania in 1972. My husband, Ted and I have been in our house in Upper Gwynedd since 1979. Our three children attended North Penn schools and are now married and living in other states. We have two teenage granddaughters. I was a registered nurse at Cincinnati Children's Hospital and when the children became teens, I went back into the workplace working with senior citizens, memory care residents and special needs seniors. I've stayed busy with multiple volunteer organizations since my retirement. I became a Democrat the summer of 2016 working with Hillary Clinton's campaign. As a Ward 5 Committee person, my goal is to help our constituents become a well-informed, inclusive, cohesive neighborhood.
