How did you get involved with SARC?
When I moved to Harford County 12 years ago, I was looking for a way to get involved and give back to the community. As soon as I met with the CEO and board members at SARC, I knew that it was an organization I could really support. SARC does such amazing work by helping victims, potential victims and survivors of domestic violence, sexual violence, child abuse and stalking. I have been proud to be a part of SARC ever since.

I visit the small town where I grew up and spend time with my family. I feel so lucky to have been raised by amazing parents and to have three terrific sisters. As a family we have grown to include in-laws, nieces and nephews, which is even better! We laugh, we eat and we really appreciate each other. My husband’s family is just as wonderful.
My favorite author is Philippa Gregory and l adore the “Harry Potter” series.
