I moved to the Southern Chester County area in 2005 because I loved the feel of being in the country. After 4 years of being in this area I wanted to meet people in the area, so I looked for an organization that offered what I have always been interested in doing… helping people. After attending one meeting, I knew this was a group of people that I wanted to be involved with. Working with these wonderful members and seeing what we could accomplish as a group with the amazing talent each member had to offer was exactly what I needed in my life. These Rotary members soon became my Rotary family! 

I have been preparing for the last 2 years to start this journey as the Longwood Rotary Club President. When talking with several past presidents they all told me to be myself and that is what I plan on doing. 

I feel very blessed to have a loving family, nice home and my own business. It wasn’t always like that growing up. I want to help give back to the community and help make a difference in someone’s life.

“Together we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change- across the globe, in our communities and in ourselves.”

This simple sentence distills so much of what is essential about Rotary. We unite because we know that we are far stronger together than we could ever be alone. We take action because we are not dreamers, but doers. We work to create lasting change that will endure long after our involvement has ended, across the globe and in our communities. And perhaps most important of all, we work to create change in ourselves, not just building a better world around us but becoming better people ourselves.
