I recently moved back to the beautiful state of Pennsylvania after living out of state for several years, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to be here and to be part of the great team at PACD! While I’ve provided support in many different industries, I’m thrilled to embark on this adventure in a new area: Conservation!

I have two wonderful children and five beautiful grandchildren (who I don’t get to see often enough!). When I’m not working or making improvements on my 96-year-old home, I love to read and spend time outdoors in God’s beautiful Creation.
