What do you enjoy most about Greater Hartford?
I’ve lived in Greater Hartford most of my life, but I continue to find new things to do: places to eat, museums to visit, parks to explore, and soccer teams to cheer. All it takes is a willingness to try.
What quote best represents your personal philosophy?
“The only way to have a friend is to be one.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson
Are you involved in any volunteer activities?
When I’m not baking cookies or crocheting a prayer shawl, I volunteer with the League of Women Voters of Greater Hartford. We moderate debates, host discussions and provide educational resources, in addition to registering new voters.
