“I’m living the dream” use to be a phrase people used that I never fully believed true, that is, until we bought our house in South Bethany in November 2015. However, for now, it’s only half the dream as my husband and I are based in DC and only can be here as our schedules permit, certainly not enough. Eager to be part of the community, I have jumped in, learning as I go, getting to know our neighbors and proud to be on the Planning Commission and on the SBPOA executive board, and hoping that the future will enable me to commit to more civic engagement here.

I have worked in marketing/marketing research for the majority of my career, with my first job at The Gallup Organization after I completed my Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, followed by a succession of consulting and client-side stints at major companies across the US. I have lived, worked and studied in many places – Cincinnati; upstate rural (Hamilton) and suburban New York State and New York City (BA from NYU); Champaign-Urbana (MS in Journalism from U of Illinois); Jacksonville (FL); Augusta (GA); Raleigh (NC); Princeton (NJ); Cape Town, South Africa; Monterrey, Mexico; and now Washington, where we have a very vibrant social life and I also volunteer. We are empty nesters, with one son in San Francisco and another in NYC and a daughter abroad, making South Bethany, as far as I can see, the obvious nexus point for our family!

I look forward to making Delaware our full-time home, albeit still in the future, and to doing what I can to contribute to the success of the SBPOA and our community.
