am a woman with many roles. I am a mother, grandmother, a retired nurse, and a community activist. I grew up in Valley Stream, NY, and went to the University of Bridgeport, CT, for a degree in nursing. It was when I was working at Mt. Sinai Hospital in Hartford that I met my husband. We moved to New York to allow him to finish his residency and then moved to Florida for his 2nd residency. We’ve lived in Palm Harbor for 34 years and raised our daughters here. I am a proud grandmother of 4.

I decided to run for office because I can help bring change to the conversation about where our state and country are headed. When no one stands up to speak, the people’s voices are not heard. Let me be that voice!
