I was born and raised in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. I received my Associates of Arts degree in fashion merchandising/marketing from Widner University in Wilmington, Delaware, becoming a member of Who's Who of American Junior College students.

After college I moved to New Orleans. Louisiana where I worked in the retail and banking industries. In 1986 I moved back to Wilmington, Delaware where I started my sales career with the Gannett Corporation. In 1999 my family and I moved to Fort Myers, Florida where I continued my career with the Gannett Corporation. During my 25 years with Gannett I sold many advertising products including print, online, and direct mail and won many sales awards for my efforts. In my last year with Gannett, using my sales experience, I became a sales recruiter identifying quality sales people who would bring value to the Gannett family.

In March of 2012 I joined Spherion Staffing as the Business development Manager. As a business development manager, I identify sales leads, and sell Spherion services to new clients and maintain a good working relationship with new and existing contacts. I am the driving force behind generating new sales leads and contacts for the Fort Myers office.

I've been involved with The Greater Fort Myers Chamber since early 2016. I'm very active with the MCS committee and have really enjoyed all the events and activities MCS has gotten me involved in.
