Personal story

My dad served in the navy for 20 years (1944-1964) and he met my mom on a tour of London, where she worked as a supervisor in an aircraft factory during WWII. I have 2 older brothers and from an early age I loved learning in the public school system. Education was my ladder of opportunity to a meaningful career and lifelong learning has led me to personal and professional success.

A self starter, I paid my own way to London on money I earned from jobs I worked during High School. I attended Birkbeck College in England and returned to attend classes at community college and UMass Boston on my way to a Masters degree from Cambridge College. I followed the working class way to a better life, hard work, perseverance and one foot in front of the other!

I married young and my first marriage did not work out. But, I gained the greatest gift of my life, my daughter Megan and the invaluable lesson of independence as a successful single mom. I came to understand that many of our most important lessons are the ones we would not choose. I also learned that it is not being knocked down that defines you, but how you pick yourself up. I never looked back and I am forward-looking to this day.

I married my husband John, a retired air-force officer with a PhD in nuclear engineering, just as he was working to get a small start up off the ground. He made a success of his business since we met in 2000 and today, we are empty nesters with a family consisting of 4 grown children, 9 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild!

My Promise

Who we choose to represent us make a big difference in what we get out of our government. Whether you are Republican, Democratic, or Independent, good decisions about our budgets and our investments can improve your life or hamper your future.

“Privatizing the Public Good” is a choice that reflects a priority of immediate greed. It pays no mind to the long term stability or progress of our towns and state. American greatness is related to its being a land of opportunity. That picture is fading in the eyes of our children and it is totally within our grasp to fix what has been broken. Greed as a priority does not serve working families. If a system isn’t working the question becomes whether breaking it completely is an appropriate answer. For me, the answer is a resounding NO. As the world gets more complex, easy answers will increasingly miss the mark.

When Government is ‘of, by and for the people’, it is responsible, practical and forward-facing. So let’s start there. You have my promise that I will follow these simple, tried and true principles as your representative. I’ll be: Responsible (with your money), Practical (working across the aisle), Forward-facing (tending to the long-term, so you don’t have to worry about it).

We need to fight back together on behalf of democracy, our greatest American asset. We can make a stand right here in New Hampshire. Its not about left and right, it never has been. The best legislatures work together to create solutions and I continue to work on good bills, regardless of party or credit.

To save the best of our system we must elect people with the vision to bring greater opportunity and prosperity to New Hampshire and it’s people. There are far too many people in our legislature who have an agenda of breaking New Hampshire’s system of government. 

I am stepping up to be part of the solution, let me continue to be your voice in Concord.
