Who Am I?

Cheshire has been my hometown for 55 years. I raised my family here, and operated a successful retail business in Cheshire which employed more than150 Cheshire residents for over 25 + years. Active in the business community as a Former Chamber of Commerce President, I recognize the importance of small business, understand their needs and the challenges of managing both personal and business budgets. I hold a BS in Special education, and am a nationally recognized educator in the Floral industry. A longtime, Cheshire cheerleader, I am committed to seeing Cheshire continue to evolve, grow and remain current in today’s world, while keeping our town an affordable, spirited and supportive community.
