I joined Englewood Rotary 22 years ago when I was an Executive Director for an Englewood based Not for Profit, which unfortunately closed 17 years ago. Prior to this position, I had worked on Wall Street in international finance for a major mutual fund company and then moved to a major international bank where I was the department head of a team of equity managers. I retired from finance when traveling had become all-consuming and I was pregnant with my eldest son. Though I left the business, and I am still try to be an active investor, but glad to be off the 24/7 loop that I saw the business going towards.
I grew up in Tenafly but have always had ties in Englewood. My father had his medical practice in Englewood for many years and he was the president of the medical association at Englewood Hospital. When approached to join Rotary, I had immediate connections to the group. During my time in the club, I have served as the secretary for several years and also reserved speakers for meetings. For the last few years, I have been involved with writing The Spoke.
I currently work at the Alpine Scout Camp (the Scout camp in Alpine off of 9-W) overseeing their retail operations. Both of my sons went through the scout program, so I was familiar with the program as a parent and as a scout leader. My husband and I are still leaders with a local troop.
My oldest son graduated a year ago from Syracuse School of Architecture and is currently attending Princeton grad school for a post-certificate Masters in Architecture. My younger son graduated from Stevens Institute of Technology in the spring with a degree in Business and Technology with a minor in Global Business. He is currently working at KPMG and is a part time grad student at Stevens.
I (with my husband) enjoy hiking, traveling, cooking and hanging with the dog.
