I am originally from Auburn, and have spent most of my life growing up on Owasco Lake. I have a background in environmental studies and psychology, in addition to anthropology, and marine biology. I have always loved the Finger Lakes region, especially our Owasco Lake. I feel lucky to be part of such an amazing and supportive community, which is why I feel it is also important to help protect our environmental resources. Growing up in the finger lakes has played a large role in shaping many of my hobbies; hunting, fishing, hiking, swimming, and art. My goal is to help protect our water quality and environmental resources so future generations can grow and admire our lake in the same way we all have over the years. Allowing them to also pursue outdoor activities and engage in environmental education and protection.

Served as a Petroleum Supply Specialist in the NY Army National Guard for five years. Graduated with a BT in Environmental Management, my senior capstone focused on studying factors preventing regeneration of natural woody seedlings in urban forests. Some of my favorite memories growing up are camping all throughout the Finger Lakes Region with my grandparents, I am happy to now be able to help protect some of these landscapes. I enjoy exploring the Adirondacks, Catskills and the Finger Lakes through hiking, mountain biking, snow shoeing, and running.
