Responsive Leader and Innovative Thinker
As Commissioner, the needs of constituents in Ward 5 are my first priority. Ward 5 includes the Coopertown, Brynford, and Merion Golf Club neighborhoods, as well as Haverford College, the Ss. Colman and John Neumann School, Coopertown Elementary, and Haverford Friends School. Ward 5’s parks and playgrounds include Polo Field, Preston Field, Elwell Field, and Highland Park (adjacent to Coopertown Elementary). In addition, Ward 5 includes the business districts on Haverford Road near County Line Road and Buck Lane, and Lancaster Avenue in Bryn Mawr.
I was a member of the Haverford Township Human Relations Commission from 2020-21 before being elected commissioner in a special election in 2021. I am an independent communications consultant, and worked previously as a communications director, advisor, and speechwriter for higher education and non-profit organizations,most recently at the University of Pennsylvania.
Growing up in southern Missouri, I earned my BA from the University of Missouri School of Journalism, and my MA from Georgetown University (in Communications, Culture and Technology). I moved to Haverford Township in 2014, my son attends Coopertown Elementary, and my older children attend high school in Lewisburg, PA.
