I was born and raised in the Philadelphia, PA, area and hold a bachelor's and master's degree from St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia.
I began my professional career as a sales representative for the Oscar Mayer Company and have held various sales and sales management positions with General Foods and the Quaker Oats Company.
In 1999, I joined a small, privately held company specializing in the retail supermarket industry with in-store promotions. I had an equity position and when the business was sold in the early 2000s, I became a local real estate agent in 2002. With the downturn in the market, I went back to my first love, the consumer package goods industry.
I am currently a regional vice president for The Dialogue Company, which is headquartered in Pennington, NJ.
In the summer of 2008, three Geneva residents and myself started a group, which we called For Accountable Controlled Tax Spending (FACTS). The group has focused on the increasing property taxes in the Geneva community, especially School District taxes. Members of the group have spoken out, and continue to speak out, against the high property taxes, which are levied on the homeowners of Geneva.
The group has a website, www.genevataxfacts.org, where the operations of every taxing body are listed.
