I am a 29 year resident of Kittery Point. I have served on the Council for fifteen years. On the Council, I recently formed the its Climate Adaptation Committee and am Council representative on the Kittery Land Use Issues Committee. I served on the Shapleigh School Revitalization Committee which led to its repurposing as the Kittery Community Center and was also on the Community Center Building committee. I formed the Rice Library Working group, which culminated in the successful referendum to restore and add to the current building. I chaired the Dogs Working Group and currently, the Beaches Working Group and the Bike/Ped Master Plan Committee.  I am Kittery’s representative to and chair of the York River Study Committee. I am, also, a volunteer for the York Hospital Vaccine Clinic and the Kittery Land Trust’s Nooney Farm. For over ten years until political conditions made it too dangerous, I travelled at least once a year to Haiti, bringing medical supplies and assisting with home construction. In my spare time, I like to bike, run, walk, kayak, and spend as much time outside as possible. I spent 35 years working at UNH, most of them as an academic administrator. My academic training was in marine science with a specialization in the evolution of snails.
