Work: President, Saint Helena Community Association (volunteer)
I serve because: I am happy with the direction DRC has taken to try and make Dundalk a better place to live and for the next generation. Trying to get more people to move to Dundalk and to invest in Dundalk is the biggest key to making a difference.
How I got involved: In 2004 the St. Helena Community Association and DRC decided to partner up for a clean-up, then in 2007, DRC was working on the Heritage Trail, which was a road to go from Center Place to Broening Highway. And we were working together on getting that accomplished.
Other affiliations and activities:
President, Saint Helena Community Association
Board of Directors, Dundalk Patapso-Neck Historical Society and Museum
Skills and expertise: I have been president of a community association for 9 years, and in those years I have learned a great deal about the political arena. I have experience raising funds for events; I worked as a Procurement Specialist for more than 30 years, and 10 of those years was with the State of Maryland. So, I learned how to ask for donations and help my community as a fundraising guru.
Other comments: I love photography! It is a hobby I have had since I was 16, so you will always see me with my camera ready to take the next best picture of people and events that are happening in Dundalk.
