Originally from New Jersey, I happily made Annapolis my home in 2006 after two sea duty tours in San Diego, CA. My husband and I were married here in 2007 and we welcomed our sons in 2009 and 2011 and twin boys in 2014. As a family, we love being outdoors, playing sports, and spending time on the water. Aside from JLA, much of my volunteer time is committed to our sons’ preschool, where I have served for the past six years on the Executive Board and am beginning my second year in the role of President. I joined JLA in 2009, when my oldest was just a few weeks old, as a way to meet talented women who were committed to helping the community. This year I am looking forward to getting to know more JLA members in my role as President-Elect.
