Whether on the Rosendale Town Board, in the State Senate, as executive director of Citizens for Local Power, or in my decision-making role on the State's Cannabis Control Board, I've been working to make positive changes in our communities that concretely improve people’s lives and opportunities. Throughout all of my work over the years, I have always taken an open, problem-solving, solutions-oriented approach to address issues that our friends and neighbors face. Everyone deserves the opportunity to realize their full potential.

My husband and I moved to Rosendale over 21 years ago. When my kids were young, I finished my doctorate, and though my concentration was international relations, I have long been a big believer in 'thinking globally, acting locally.' Ulster County is my home, I've raised my children here, I've dedicated my life to public service here, and I know what our communities need to thrive now and well into the future.
