Like so many people, I was dumbfounded by the results of the 2016 Presidential election. When I learned how many people across this country did not actually cast a vote in that election, my dismay turned to determination. I decided that I had to get involved, that I had to do something. I started by writing postcards for PTV’s first postcard campaign in the spring of 2017 to do something to change things in my own district. Even though we didn’t win that special election, I saw first-hand the energy and enthusiasm that a strong Democratic candidate generated in my long-held red district and now know that change is possible. I am committed to doing whatever I can to help turn the tide and elect strong Democrats at all levels across our country.
In addition to postcarding, I spend a lot of my time volunteering (high school marching band at the moment) and keeping up with my 3 grown children and high-school-age step-son. I recently retired after many years as an oncology social worker in a large hospital system and if there’s one thing that cancer has taught me is that nothing can be taken for granted. For that reason, I can often be found advocating for causes I believe in, drinking good wine, and traveling the world discovering new places to explore with my wonderful husband and family.
