I have been a resident of Bellefonte for the past 13 years, having originally hailed from Penns Valley. I have some ideas that I would like to see implemented in Bellefonte to contribute to the preservation of her history, increase tourism with new events, and revitalize the business community. If you see me out and about in the community with Nikita, my Siberian Husky please stop and say hello. I look forward to meeting you.

I moved to Centre County from southeastern PA to attend PSU in the fall of 1983 where I earned a Bachelor’s and Master’s of Agricultural Engineering. While completing my master’s degree I met my husband, John, and decided that this area would now be home. John and I have lived in Bellefonte since we married in 1991 (in Spring Township from 1991-2008). We moved to our current home in the Borough in the fall of 2008.
I love the small town feel and friendliness of the Borough. I became involved in Borough Council because I wanted to make sure that decisions that council makes are in the best interests of the residents in ways that protect their rights and are fiscally responsible.
Little known fact about me is that I grew up in a family that lived by “Reduce, reuse and recycle” way before it became cool. 😊

I have been a resident of Bellefonte all my life. I’ve benefited from the many opportunities that come with living in a safe, clean, and caring environment. I’ve watched as many exciting new projects have been completed in our town. I’ve always believed public service to be such an honorable and valuable endeavor and have often thought about how I could contribute. Like many people, I suppose, there was always something standing in the way. Career, family, taking care of a home, hobbies and any number of other reasons contributed to me putting off action till another day. I reached a point in my life where I felt I needed to take action. I started by becoming more educated and informed about the day-to-day operations of local government. I decided to be directly involved and help make a real difference in the manner our beautiful town is managed. I want to be a voice for our most important resource, our citizens.
