About Me

Candid, open communication is extremely important to me, and I understand the importance of complete information in informed decision-making. Feel free to contact me with questions or feedback. Let's dive in!

Our town is full of incredible people who truly care about one another. I've had the privilege to work alongside them to support our community.

Cumberland / North Yarmouth Lions Club

Whether gathering for our monthly meeting, working the Cumberland Fair Booth, or making homemade apple pies for our annual fall fundraiser, I love working with my fellow Lions to make an impact locally. I am honored and excited to be our Club Secretary for 2024-2025!

 

As our Club's Web Admin, I led a significant update of our website to improve usability and modernize its design. I also created a centralized Google Workspace hub, the new cloud-based home for all club documents and records.

These enhancements have:

  • Enhanced collaboration,

  • Boosted organization and efficiency,

  • Ensured smooth transitions in roles and responsibilities,

  • ​Streamlined management of our local initiatives,

  • Increased community engagement, 

  • Helped drive new membership.

Community Orchard Subcommittee, Lands and Conservation Commission

The Cumberland Community Orchard is a free-to-pick, Town-owned resource for all ages to engage in local food independence and sustainable practices through hands-on learning. Although the Orchard is still in its early stages, it will grow to be a lasting community asset. As our Education Liaison, I am working to forge a long-term partnership with MSAD51, promoting the Orchard's integration into the school curriculum and student volunteer activities.

What I Bring

  • My service in the Air Force ingrained a deep commitment to integrity, guiding my approach to life, work, and public service. I strive to do what is ethically right, even when difficult or unpopular. As a Town Councilor, I would carry this commitment into every decision and interaction, ensuring my actions are rooted in honesty and ethical standards. This includes transparency in communication and a resolute adherence to principles, regardless of external pressures, ensuring that the community can trust and rely on my actions and intentions.

  • I'm known for my attention to detail and approach every task with a mindset that no stone should be left unturned. This diligence ensures I consider all possible options and outcomes, aiming to make the most informed and effective decisions for our community. My commitment to thorough research and careful consideration of details would be instrumental in addressing the complex issues facing Cumberland, from fiscal management to community development, ensuring that every decision is well-founded and forward-thinking.

  • I bring a vibrant energy and excitement to my roles, driven by a genuine passion for innovation and community service. By maintaining a growth and learning mindset, I actively jump in with both feet when presented with a task, eager to explore new ideas and approaches that can benefit our town. As a Town Councilor, my drive to encourage progress and embrace innovative solutions would help Cumberland grow sustainably, ensuring that our community not only adapts to change but thrives in it.

  • Advocating for all corners of Cumberland, I am committed to ensuring that every segment of our town is heard and supported equally. My approach is to actively listen to the concerns of all residents, thoughtfully considering diverse opinions even when consensus is challenging. This advocacy is about leveraging the collective wisdom of our community, respecting the voices of both long-standing residents and those new to Cumberland, and striving for decisions that benefit the entire community equitably.

  • Understanding the unique dynamics between the Town Council, the school district, and the Town of North Yarmouth, it's important that all three continue to build a cooperative relationship and actively work to break down silos as much as possible. With Cumberland undergoing significant transitions, including welcoming three new Town Councilors, new North Yarmouth Select Board and School Board members, and our new incoming Town Manager, the need for collaboration, compromise, and synergy has never been greater.

     

    My existing working relationships with school board and Council members and stakeholders across Cumberland position me well to advocate for enhanced cooperation and mutual understanding. In these times of change, promoting diverse perspectives and collaborative discussions isn't even an option, it's a basic requirement. Approaching issues with a synergistic mindset ensures we achieve balanced outcomes that reflect the true needs and aspirations of our entire community, while responsibly managing community resources.
