Candidate statement:


My family and I moved to Weston in 1967, and I graduated Weston High School in 1980. I chose Weston to raise my son as a single mom, feeling that the sense of community and cultivating roots was one of the essential elements to raising my child.


I have a very diverse work experience, and with my Bachelor’s in Education and a teaching certification in CT, I chose the earth. I am committed and passionate about my work and know to the bone that it has an impact to help better serve our community. The knowledge I pass on to friends, family and acquaintances will most definitely affect not only their lives, but they too will pass it on because it affects us all.


As a woman, mother and member of our human community, I became increasingly aware of how important it is that we all as individuals pay attention to our choices and the impact that they have. We do in fact have choices about our environment, economy, health and education; we need a voice.


My commitment started twelve years ago when I started an organic landcare business; I have my NOFA organic lawn care certification and am a beekeeper as well. My business's main focus is to help each individual make better choices about landcare. Teaching my clients and my friends how to compost, move away from synthetic chemicals and start to naturalize their property with native gardening for a more sustainable landscape, one household at a time, has been my mantra. I also recently became an advocate for renewable energy with a company that walks the walk and talks the talk. I am committed to clean energy, with the purpose to help people make educated choices where we get our energy and how important it is to choose renewable resources.


I am pleased to be running for State Representative in district 135 for the Green Party. My focus will be to continue raising awareness and educating people on how to make better choices by supporting local commerce, sustainable food, land care practices, and renewable energy choices. I plan to take these issues to the state level to ensure that our choice for our families, community, economy and environment are heard, with the hope of making a difference. I am committed, passionate and ready for this honored position in District 135. Honored to be your voice.
