My educational background is in human resources and small business administration, with prior roles as Founding Director of the YMCA in Somers, NY, and most recently as Project Manager at Wellesley College, with principal work around staff management, operational continuity, departmental budget and endowment oversight, and large event strategizing.  I’ve lived all over the US, and even spent four wonderful years on assignment in Tokyo!   But Massachusetts has been my home for 10 years, and I am enthusiastic about the work of NEWLI and the learning opportunities it offers for women in this area.  My chief volunteer activity is serving as Executive Director of  the Back Bay Ringers (a community Handbell Ensemble right here in Boston).
