Community Involvement-

My community involvements are with the following....

Newport Board of Realtors, Newport Chamber of Commerce, Potter League is an Animal Rescue in Middletown.

In the winter months of Real Estate I've volunteered to coach girls basketball at Saint Michael's Country Day School in Newport RI and they were undefeated.

I had the opportunity to share my horses to empower unprivileged girls from Family Services in Middletown, RI. I taught girls to ride horses and watched their amazing transformation. This was an opportunity of a lifetime to witness these girls develop confidence and self-esteem. This powerful experience taught the girls patience and kindness that brings respect and cooperation from the horse. The relationship with a horse can offer life lessons with positive partnerships based on understanding and trust that can be incorporated into life challenges to succeed.

Whenever possible I support all local fundraisers in my community.

Lastly, I volunteered for two years with Rebuild in Newport, a non profit organization that assists with local homes that need extensive repairs in Newport County.

Animal lover-

On a personal note; I have two beautiful horses Kal Star, they live in Jamestown on 18 acres directly on the bay. Whenever I'm free - I'm at the farm. It's a privilege and joy to be around these amazing animals.

I support the Potter League, a local animal shelter here in Newport County. They have made a remarkable difference for lost or abandoned animals in our Community providing safe and happy new homes for these lucky pets and their owners.
