I grew up in New York City where the arts was an integral part of our curriculum and every child had the opportunity to sing, dance, perform, and play musical instruments. I performed in Carnegie Hall as part of a bi-centennial celebration and am incredibly grateful for having had this experience in my youth. I believe encouraging artistic expression is fundamental to our well-being and I am excited to be a part of these efforts. While I have been a community volunteer for over 30 years, I first experienced VCF events through my good friend Gina Guarino. I’m excited to share my extensive experience in project management, marketing and event planning to help the VCF reach their goals.

Favorite Musical Artist:  While I love most genres of music, my favorite all around talent has to be Barbra Streisand.  I even entered a singing contest where she was a judge when I was in elementary school in New York City.  She was so encouraging.

Favorite VCF Event: I love that all the events just bring people together to enjoy the diversity of talent in our community.

Favorite Activity: Travel, writing, and photography has been my passion for most of my life.
