My husband, Bucky, and I have lived in Essex Fells since 2007.  We have two children Kylie and Ryan, who are both currently in high school.  Kylie is at West Essex H.S. and Ryan attends Seton Hall Prep.

When the children were at Essex Fells School I was very active in the EFS PTA.  I was also a Trustee for the Essex Fells Foundation for Educational Excellence (EFFEE) and served as President for two years from 2015 - 2017.  In 2012, I co-chaired the Essex Fells Holiday Home Tour and Boutique.  

I have served on the Essex Fells Country Club Women’s Association and served as Vice President from 2016-2019.  

I am a member of the Garden Club of Essex Fells and work on The Annual Plant Sale committee and co-chair the Civics committee.  

I joined the Junior League of Montclair-Newark in 2003 and have had numerous roles and board positions over the years, including serving as President from 2010 - 2012.  I am currently serving my 3rd term as Sustainer VP.  

I grew up in Bloomfield.  I graduated from Glen Ridge H.S. and then University of South Florida.

My professional experience includes working for a commercial real estate firm, Newmark & Co. in Manhattan, Kling Lindquist, a commercial interior design firm in Iselin, NJ and working for Tiffany & Co. in Business Sales in their corporate offices in Parsippany.
