A Connecticut Story of Leadership and Service

“Let's be willing to challenge the status quo: work together, innovate, and be extraordinary.”

I’m a proud Connecticut native from a small-business family that still operates the company started by my great-grandfather, an immigrant farmer, in 1937. From childhood, I learned the power of common-sense principles like excellent customer service for honest, fair prices. Solving people’s problems became my “true north.”

“My Connecticut experience showed me that hard work is easy, but the courage to be innovative is often what’s necessary to make a difference.”

With a UCONN education and a strong innovation muscle, I dedicated myself to the success of small business owners during a 25-year marketing and communications career. I worked with hundreds of people across the state and the U.S., often in collaboration with municipal, state and federal governments.

As a working mom of three, I’ve never rested in my determination to balance the challenges with the joys. I have found time for coaching basketball, the arts, gardening, and community service – always anchored by home cooked meals with the family around the kitchen table.

In 2020 the people of Southbury, Bridgewater, Roxbury and Washington will choose new representation for the first time in 32 years, as the honorable Arthur O’Neill retires at the end of his current term. Send me to Hartford where I will honor his legacy of diligent service and powerfully support the district from day one.

I want to use my qualifications and energetic leadership in the state legislature on behalf of the citizens of the four remarkable and distinct small towns of the 69th House District. I ask for your vote to become your next State Representative.
