I am very proud to serve my community in so many wonderful capacities. As an elected official, I have worked along side our Village Mayor to bring more grants into our Village, created programs and projects with our other board members. As a community leader, I have had the opportunity to create and chair several events to benefit many families in Haverstraw.  After 14 years of being a local business owner, I’ve been a driving force in the local economy and will continue working to keep our businesses in Haverstraw thriving. 

I look forward to continuing my journey to ensure Haverstraw is a desirable place to live, work, shop, and ultimately enjoy.
