Originally a Jersey girl, my family moved to the Lehigh Valley in 1964. My background is eclectic and self-taught. I have studied Anthropology, Interior Design, Web Design, and Jewelry Crafting. I have lived in Pennsylvania, Jerusalem, New York, Chicago and Pennsylvania (again!)
I come from a mixed political family, with both Democrats and Republicans present and loud at holiday dinners. My Mom started me on my present political path by taking me canvassing for Barack Obama in her Upper Saucon neighborhood in 2008.
Once Trump was elected, I had a choice: go crazy or do *something.* I joined the newly-formed East Penn Democratic Club and contributed to the Communications Committee and Neighborhood Task Force. I was pleasantly surprised to realize my own neighborhood was half Democratic, with a healthy dose of Independents. Having spent many minutes in the polling booth going eeny meeny miney mo, I began to share information about issues and candidates with my neighbors. It turns out this is a job in the local Democratic party, precinct committeeperson. Thanks to all of you who voted for me, I can now officially go beyond giving you information. I can also begin to let the Democratic Party know what you WANT.
Even though I am retired, I still keep up with many activities I did more full-time previously. Take a look at them here:
