About Me

My husband Tom and I are blessed with two grown children, three dogs and two cats (two are HSYC alumni). 

I am a decorated United States Air Force Veteran of Desert Storm and have traveled extensively during my career. I now work in customer success for a large technology services company and recently completed my Masters Degree in Organizational Leadership. 

I have been volunteering with The Humane Society of York County in many capacities for the past three years. All of my friends and family say I am truly obsessed with animals and saving lives is my passion. I clean cat cages at the shelter, arrange books at the thrift shop and volunteer in numerous capacities on our committees. I find each of these opportunities to serve as a way to ensure I am fully understanding of our operations in all areas that are critical to our long term success. 

My focus as a board member is to ensure the animals in our care find responsible, loving forever homes. I also want to expand our facility, staff, programs and rescue network throughout York County to be a safe haven. Every animal in need deserves a safe and loving place to call home for the long or short term as our community continues to grow.
