I began managing enterprise-wide projects at John Hancock Financial Services during my 20 +year career as a technology training professional in the Technical Education Center (TEC). As a dedicated consultant to the Chief Information Officer of the company, I managed IT organizational development and workforce learning through a competency management program that I oversaw for TEC. I left Hancock when we moved to Hollis in 2005.

My Hollis history
We moved to Hollis in 2005 for the schools while our youngest was still at home. Although I was working full-time at SkillSoft in Nashua as a software Program Manager, I volunteered to serve on the Hollis Old Home Days Committee in 2007 when they put out the word that they needed new members. I got to use my project management skills and to meet some great members of the Hollis community. That started a string of volunteer roles for me in town.
Chair of Hollis Pipeline Taskforce
Member of the NH Pipeline Awareness group
Hollis Member, Nashua Regional Planning Commission, Energy Facility Advisory Board
Hollis Zoning Board, alternate (current)
Chair, Hollis Democratic Town Committee
Old Home Days 2007-2012
Strawberry Festival Outside Worker Chair, Ways & Means Chair
Hollis Woman’s Club member (current)
New Hampshire State Representative
Member of Science, Technology & Energy Committee, 2018-2020
Worked with subcommittees and committees of conference in my first term to facilitate bills on energy, clean water/PFAS help for towns, and raising the net metering cap to aid the NH municipal energy economy.
Passed SB284 in the House by collaborating with utilities, the consumer advocate, and other energy stakeholders to define a multi-use, statewide, online, energy platform that will enable electric restructuring, roll up various forms of electric data, and support energy efficiency and grid modernization in New Hampshire.
Currently working with a large group of stakeholders at the Public Utilities Commission as an intervenor on the implementation of the statewide energy platform, to ensure it meets its full potential.
A House Member of the Emissions’ Commission – This group is tasked to develop a science-based set of goals for state emissions’ reduction targets for 2030, 2040, and 2050.
Taking the knowledge gained during my time leading a community response to the NED Pipeline Project and my experience at the Nashua Regional Planning Commission to ensure there is a voice at the table for future-facing energy decisions. The goal has got to be multi-faceted (think of me as your ‘walk and chew gum’ Representative).
It is not enough to say we have only one goal when it comes to energy decisions. It is not a choice between clean solutions, low prices, or reliability. We need all of these for the people of New Hampshire, so it really matters who is working for you in Concord at this critical time. That is the lane I have worked for and I hope you will trust me to return to my job with the House Science, Technology and Energy Committee.
