My Background & Experience

Former Teacher

  • Taught middle school and high school English in smaller NH communities, guest taught in the country of Belize.

  • Learned firsthand the challenges that face our dedicated educators to this day, from overcoming limited resources to dealing with inefficient bureaucracy.

Military Veteran

  • Enlisted in the U.S. Army where I developed leadership skills, learned a foreign language, and traveled extensively in service to my country.

  • Honorably discharged after completing my active duty tour, called back to service following the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Intelligence Officer/Analyst

  • Transitioned from the military to working for the federal government as an intelligence officer focused on security threats in various regions.

  • Later joined the NYPD as an intelligence analyst, where I worked on a team that coordinated its efforts with multiple state and federal agencies. 

Mother & Family Member

  • Faced with the reality of child care costs, I turned down opportunities to excel in my career field and devoted myself to the full-time care of my young children.

  • Ultimately moved our young family back to my home state of New Hampshire, where my husband and I discovered and fell in love with Concord's vibrant downtown, tree-lined parks, and community neighborhoods.​

Community Volunteer

  • As a stay-at-home mom, I stayed active in the school community by developing free or low-cost events for students at Christa McAuliffe School.

  • Served as a Board Member of the Friends of the Merrimack River Greenway Trail, creating free or low-cost events to draw the community to the site of the trail.

  • Worked extensively with the Concord Police Department to further develop their Bike Rodeo, where children learn bike safety skills and some receive a free bike and helmet. 

Administrative Experience

  • Overseeing administrative functions as an Office Coordinator for Home Care, Hospice & Palliative Care Alliance of NH and the current Administrative Assistant for the Concord Public Library Foundation (CPLF).

  • Ensuring communication among members and the public through database management and analysis.

  • Filing, bookkeeping and organizing materials for easy resource recovery.
