President & CEO
I was born and raised in Niagara County, I have a true understanding of the needs of our community and always wanted to help our Niagara area thrive. I spent most of my career working with people with developmental disabilities. I was the previous Executive Director of Opportunities Unlimited of Niagara which is a United Way organization.
Working closely with United Way for 25 years I was honored to become the President of the United Way of Greater Niagara in 2016. I enjoy assisting people who are less fortunate than others and I love to help people whether family, friends or part of my daily job to reach their maximum potential and find a passion in their life.
On a personal note I love spending time with friends, whether out for dinner or coffee and I love attending sporting events. Yes I am a Bills, Sabres and Yankee’s fan. My favorite past time is spending time with my husband Steve and when he is around my 20 year old college student Connor.
I feel very fortunate working here at United Way of Greater Niagara with a committed staff and Board of Directors.
