As the youngest daughter of a career United States Marine Corps father I have lived in various parts of our country including North Carolina, California, Hawaii, Virginia and Maryland. Between Kindergarten and graduation from Crossland High School in Prince George’s County, Maryland I attended 6 different schools. I also spent a year studying Elementary and Special Education at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh.  Though teaching ultimately did not turn out to be my calling I have enormous respect for those who dedicate their lives to our children.

My husband, Mark, and I moved to Worton from the “western shore” in 2003. We have two elementary school aged children who attend Kent County Public Schools. One of our children will be moving up to the Middle School next year. When I am not shuttling my kids hither and yon I run my own website design business. I work primarily with local non-profits, artists and small businesses. I am the founder and organizer of Hebe’s Garden which takes place during the summer months at the Chestertown Farmers Market and provides free children’s programming. I am also a founding member of the school advocacy group Support Our Schools. I like to volunteer and be involved in our community and have helped organize the Chestertown Tea Party Festival, the Chestertown HP Festival and I am on the Marketing Committee for the Garfield Center for the Arts.
