What would you like voters to know about you and your vision for the board?
I am a firm believer education is the building block to a well-rounded individual. I am fortunate to have achieved a B.S. in Environmental Science, a M.S. in Industrial Hygiene and a J.D. in law. As a result, I have had several diverse employment experiences in the environmental, health and safety industry, in addition to the practice of law that will aid me in fulfilling the various duties as a member of the board. As a current board member of the Ocean City Free Public Library, board member of the Friends of the Ocean City Pops and former president of the Ocean City Exchange Club, I understand both the business and policy-making roles a board member must have to be productive.
