What is an issue affecting the town that you care about most and want to make a priority? How will it guide your decision making?
I am currently an incumbent on the Board of Finance. Monroe is my hometown, I returned home to raise my kids in a fiscally responsible community supportive of family values, a superior education all the while offering fun and exploration through our parks and recreation programs.
After graduating from Masuk, I attended Stonehill College. Since graduating in 2002 with my MBA from Quinnipiac University, I developed and managed multiple P&Ls which included budgeting and driving revenue while maintaining cost controls to maintain profitability.
I gained nonprofit leadership experience as a Board of Director for the Fairfield Chamber of Commerce. While serving on the Board, I approved and oversaw budget adherence as well as helped create long-term financial goals.
In November of 2020, I joined the Corporate Leadership Team as the Director of The Contact Center, Inside Sales of a national corporation. As a member of the Leadership Team, I work closely with Executive Leadership on thoughtfully expanding our national operations, moreover, aligning internal support to meet the new demand.
Growing up and returning to Monroe with my family affords me the unique opportunity to bridge my life’s experience to my cherished hometown. As a fiscal conservative, I will represent our residents and collaborate with other fellow elected officials to ensure we spend within our means, control taxes, and attract businesses to town.
