I was born & raised in Massachusetts, the proud mother of 3 young adult sons. I enjoy traveling, yoga, dancing, spending time with family and friends. I also enjoy spending time outdoors and at the beach whenever I can, I find the beach is a soothing place. I have volunteered at the Clearwater aquarium in Florida, where I got to go out on the Sea Life Safari boat tours educating guests every Sunday, while at the same time enjoying the warm weather, and the beautiful dolphins and other sea life. I am currently the director of substance use disorders wraparound program and the mobile outreach at CAPIC. I love the work that I do to support those in need. My work has strengthen my compassion for those that are struggling and in need of support. I am reminded everyday that everyone has a story and showing compassion & empathy goes a long way and make someone’s day.
