I am inspired by the progress we have seen in this area and the opportunities that are on the horizon. I firmly believe that government can and should play a role in that progress. Good government requires leadership that recognizes all the things that make us unique and distinct: our heritage, our history, our perspectives and place in the community. But it also calls on us to envision our path forward as a shared endeavor, where our common needs and benefits are paramount: services for our most vulnerable neighbors, safe transportation, responsive emergency services, and stewardship of our natural resources.

I believe I have the experience and background to contribute to Lackawanna County's progress. My current role at Pennsylvania Treasury has given me a unique opportunity to understand policy at the state level while also directing the Women & Money Project, providing education and resources to make women more financially secure. As the former Chief of Staff of Lackawanna County, I managed the day-to-day operations of county government and know the intricacies of each department, the county budget, and the challenges that remain. And my work at The University of Scranton allowed me to engage with college students as an educator both in the classroom and at the Women's Center. I have served on many boards locally and regionally, providing me with valuable insight into the crucial work that is done at the ground level in our communities.

In all of my endeavors, I have tried to give back as much as I've received. It is for that reason that I am running for public office.

I am proud to be a Scrantonian and proud to call Lackawanna County home. And it is time that at least one of the voices on the Board of Commissioners is a woman's voice. With that hope, I humbly ask for your support and your vote for Commissioner of Lackawanna County.
