    Personal Information:
    I grew up in Baldwin, New York, a suburb of New York City and am the daughter of two public school teachers. After completing my bachelor's and master's degree, I moved to Athens with my former husband where we raised two daughters (Clare, 34, and Anne, 30) who attended the Athens Montessori School and the local public schools. In my spare time, you can often find me cycling either my road bike, my mountain bike, or a commuter bike. 

    Her initial term began January 6, 2021.
