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!
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
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.
