I fell in love with Seabrook Island in 2018 visiting as a renter. The natural beauty and wildlife of the island allows me to unwind as I approach the low country. I am invested in preserving its natural beauty and peaceful atmosphere and being part of the vibrant community. As a non-resident owner, I bring a unique perspective that will help represent all types of owners.

We bought our Spinnaker townhome in 2020, and enjoy visiting often. My husband and I have two teenagers and we have lived in Charlotte, NC since 2007. Before that we lived and worked in Boston. I was raised in the Washington, DC area and graduated from Virginia Tech. I earned my MBA from Suffolk University in Boston.

I have been a member of the SIPOA Communications committee for the last two years. I recently worked on developing a Welcome Program pilot for new owners. My corporate experience and my previous volunteer committee board work from the last 20 years will bring my communication skills, networking experiences and creative ideas to the Nominating committee. I have served as chair of multiple volunteer PTA committees, including participating on the PTA nominating committee. I have also chaired several committees in the Junior League of Boston and Charlotte. I have served as a literacy tutor and enrichment volunteer in elementary schools, and am currently mentoring two college students through local non-profits. I have a strong attention to detail and am deadline-driven.

I began my Marketing career in commercial real estate, but have been working primarily in the Financial Services industry since 1999. I currently work as a Marketing Director at Equitable Financial. I regularly interview candidates for positions at my corporate organization, which allows me the opportunity to keep my communication and analytical skills sharp and evaluate which roles are a good match for different types of people.

I am a good listener and understand that all views are important to consider when making decisions. I believe being open minded and factual can help build trust and connections that enable alignment and progress towards goals.

The two most important issues that I see facing Seabrook Island in the next five years are coastal adaptation planning due to climate changes, and volunteerism. I look forward to seeing residents and non-residents become more engaged in all the volunteer opportunities that exist to keep Seabrook Island and its wildlife naturally beautiful and sustainable, and to meet the needs of the community.
