Charitable Foundation

Giving Back

The Erie Community has been a great place to grow up, to live and to work.  Since Erie has given me so much – It is my turn to give back.  I serve a few organizations and focus on at least one local charity.


Imagination Library – Books for Kids

When kids are read to, they learn to read earlier and easier, which provides a boost
toward successful education.  Imagination Library mails a new book month right to
a child (in their own name) from 0 to 5 years old.  Any child in Erie county qualifies –
the parent just has to register.  At each closing, I will sponsor a child to get a book
each month for a year through Imagination Library.  Like the idea of promoting child
​literacy?  Just buy or sell a home with me!

Preservation Erie

Erie and Northwest Pennsylvania is rich with treasured structures,
beautiful architecture and a cultural heritage that is worth preserving.
 Preservation Erie’s mission is to promote, preserve, and enhance the
distinctive character of greater Erie through community based
planning, design, and historic preservation.  I serve on the board of
​Preservation Erie

Erie Together

Erie Together is a movement of hundreds of local individuals, organization
and businesses working together to prevent and reduce poverty, elevate
prosperity, and make the Erie region a community of opportunity where
everyone can learn, work and thrive.   I work on the focus of Individual
and Family Stability.  Other action teams are:  Early childhood and
​readiness, Education and Workforce Development

I also spent years volunteering  on the boards of Millcreek Township Sewer Authority and with the Greater Erie Board of Realtors.
