PERSONAL INTERESTS/COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

I live in Cuba, NY with my husband and canine companions.  I am proud to be a volunteer firefighter for the Cuba Fire Department, a nationally certified fire investigator, and a member of the Allegany County Fire Investigation Team. For more than ten years, I served on the Cuba Library Board of Trustees, am a three time Ironman Triathlon finisher, and finisher of the challenging 100 mile cross country Canadian Ski Marathon. Currently, I enjoy rowing, canoeing, snowshoeing, hiking, baking, cooking, and reading.
