Interests and Involvement
As a busy mom of three teenage girls, much of my time centers around their many interests and activities these days. Fortunately, I find great joy in playing the role of a lifetime as "busy mom!" I also enjoy other important roles as an advocate, supporter and active contributor for several arts-based organizations, including Pittsburgh Musical Theater, Little Lake Theater, area church choirs and more! When I'm not working behind the scenes, you also may find me performing on stage!
Additionally, I have served as a volunteer for several community organizations in a leadership capacity. Most recently, I joined the team at Dress for Success to help empower women in the workforce! My work in the arts and with community organizations always has fueled my ability to be a creative problem solver, team player, and compelling storyteller!
